This is the series I was making when I became compelled to create the Alabama Project.
The Land:Sea series explores the similarity and ambiguity of cactus and coral structures. Cactus is a plant; coral, an animal. They are adapted to radically different environments. Does this structure relate to function? Fractal patterns in nature can make dissimilar things have similar shapes. Sometimes this is related to a similar function; other times not. This relationship of cactus to coral may also be viewed metaphorically: all creatures, humans included, can be alike even though born or living under vastly different circumstances.
