Crystal Morey: Through the “great acceleration”, which has been taking place since the industrial revolution, human beings have become the biggest variable in the changing nature of the natural world. The way we develop our societies has a direct and irreversible impact on the natural ecosystems that we are continually encroaching upon.

This influence upon her sculpture has given the pieces a totemic feel that immediately calls to mind our changing attitudes toward the beings that we share the planet with.
