THE LAWS OF NATURE
APHRA SHEMZA & SIAN ELLEN
 
9-22 DECEMBER 2011
 
 
 
UNTITLED 2011 Aphra Shemza  -  CACTUS GUITAR 2011 Sian Ellen
 
The Laws of Nature is a collaborative project and exhibition of work 
by Aphra Shemza and Sian Ellen. It aims to highlight the significance 
of the natural world in relation to human advancement and also 
promotes the fusion between synthesised and organic material within 
the world. The exhibition seeks to remind the viewer that the evolution 
of human advancement originates from the natural world.
 
Both artists adopt this viewpoint; however they each take a different 
approach in their individual practice. The concept behind the work is 
nature taking over technology and technology consuming nature; an 
observation and metaphor for humanity's ability to destroy nature 
and nature's ability to destroy humanity.
