Recommended Reading: Blending Nature and Technology

11/19/13 | View Comments

In today’s world where you can’t navigate day to day activities without the latest technologies, artist Mark Dorf is working to bring the natural and digital together in a way that embraces the beauty of both sides of our 21st century environment. Using digital photography, collaging, 3D rendering and scanning technology, Dorf has created a new series of photographs called “//_PATH” that blend geometric forms with images of nature.

Dorf aims to immerse himself in new environments while working on these photos, but also seeks to display how dependent we’ve become on technology to help us navigate these natural environments. He refers to this blending of nature and digital as a “comparison of languages,” with nature being the most ancient of all languages that helped give way to our new language of modern, digital images.

The foremost goal of his collection of images, according to Dorf, is to help people realize that it is possible to live in harmony between the natural and digital. By bringing the two closer together, people can learn to appreciate balancing both in their lives.

    About Us

    We are a private nonprofit that supports, informs, and inspires the creation of publicly accessible urban green spaces. We believe that every city resident needs nearby green space to provide opportunities for mindfulness, respite, and renewal. The Foundation has issued its final grants to build five Open Spaces Sacred Places and research the impacts on a variety of users with the hope that the powerful connection between nature, spirit and human wellbeing will be scientifically proven.
