Maria Park: Counter Nature

Maria Park has continued to explore how we, as viewers, experience our world indirectly through filters such as film, popular culture, and the constant trafficking of information on the internet. For "Counter Nature" Park turns her eye toward our exposure to our national treasures. Park land is constructed nature and our interaction with it is mediated by park rules and regulations and cannot be appreciated with complete freedom of movement. The subject provides fertile ground for the artist’s explorations of perception and experience.
