Julie Humby, A Life Less Ordinary

In A Life Less Ordinary, Julie Humby explores the beauty of everyday objects in nature and the connection that we have with the natural world. The exhibition is comprised of objects of naturalia, artificialia, exotica and mirabilia displayed in a manner that references a ‘Cabinets of Curiosity,’ questioning accepted scientific classification systems in a post-disciplinary era, and purposefully encouraging uncertainty in the explanation of our relationship with nature and culture.  The living world is not only immediately experienced but perceived, objects speak to each other and to us across time and space.  "Humans do not stand outside of nature: we too, are animals, a part of the very thing we have tried to control…. Just as humanity cannot be said to stand outside of culture and society, we construct and are constructed by nature." Mark Dion, American conceptual artist

A Life Less Ordinary is part of Julie Humby’s submission for her Master of Media Arts
