"After frequenting the creek on my property to clean up trash that had collected there, I began considering the idea of resilience within the contexts of material and time. There is resilience in nature that requires change (cyclical time and energy) to sustain itself. Alternatively, there is resilience in man-made material that sustains itself by being resistant to change. Inextricably, man-made material and material produced by nature are both subject to the same entropic forces at the creek. As observers and participants, we get a glimpse of ourselves– the impermanence or resilience contained by our past, present, and future, whenever we decide to visit the creek."
