The Oikos Project

Posted on: Monday, March 10, 2008

Ecology (from Greek: οίκος, oikos, "household"; and λόγος, logos, "knowledge") is the scientific study of the distribution and abundance of life and the interactions between organisms and their environment. The environment of an organism includes physical properties, which can be described as the sum of local abiotic factors such as insolation (sunlight), climate, and geology, and biotic factors, which are other organisms that share its habitat.

A continuation of my exploration of ideas related to 'maternal and material instinct', I recently initiated a series that will consist of mixed media (fiber and collage) constructions created in the domestic sphere. Materials are to be harvested, recycled, or repurposed from bits found within the immediate 'nest building range'. The Oikos Project will last for 52 weeks, one year in the life of a mother and artist.
