Denatured

In modern times we find ourselves at a disconnect with the planet that supports us. The waste we create consumes habitats across the world and forces ecosystems to rapidly adjust to the changing conditions or be extinguished. Diversity declines and we continue to search for beauty in the natural world. I wonder where will we find this experience of awe and wonder when our world is a wasteland. Latin for against the natural order (de- of or against, natura- nature) this responds to this condition and seeks beauty from industrial waste.
