Jessica Broz

AUArts Grad Show Broz-77


My current work explores topics of ecology, interdependent relationships, and permaculture through material interactions exploring a language between various technologies, industrial materials, and living organisms. I create interactive experiences that explore ways of considering a future of harmony between the human-made and the natural world, while seeking ways for these to be positive and sustainable. I am interested in how humans and nature are interdependent through networks of biodiversity, how plants and the natural environment help us connect with ourselves and each other.

In my current work I use reclaimed, and found materials, establishing installations where interactivity engenders awareness and empathy towards expansive ecologies. My work highlight’s themes of resiliency and intelligence of nature. I seek to provoke questions and conversations, through bridging concepts between science and art as my research considers non-empirical approaches to understand our relationship with nature.

Through my work and its collaborative, interactive elements, I hope to engender an awareness of our ecosystem and our participatory role in is health and future. In contrast to Bio art, which prioritizes empirical science, my methodology of Eco art seeks to establish a caring and human dialogue in relation to our natural environment.
