In Shawn Smith's sculptures, our digital world and nature collide: "I am interested in how we experience nature through technology," he says. "I grew up in a large city, connecting with the natural world through computers and TV. With my work, I create three-dimensional sculptural representations of two-dimensional images of nature I find online." He meticulously assembles cut and dyed wood, he says, to directly contrast with "the slipperiness and speed of the digital world." See more images at shawnsmithart.com.
