"While studying ecology, a few different ideas or theories have made me switch perspecitves entirely and see nature and ecosystems in a new light. Every time this happens, I get excited about the science of ecology all over again. One of these ideas was the ecological theory of complex adaptive systems, where we talked about alternative stable states and how the resilience of an ecosystem is so important to its stability. I wanted to show this idea in my square, where I combined the abstract "ball-and-cup" model with a representation of a forest and stream at sunset."
What materials did you use to make your square?
Paint, Moss, Cardstock, Buttons
