Separation of state by RichardGeorgeDavis Separation of state by RichardGeorgeDavis
The space we as humans occupy, nature and civilisation in conflict within each and every one of us as the ideal modern life we live verse the natural wonder of the world from where we have come from and still strive to spend our time.

If there is a human space we live in, most of us see it as the modern civilisation which in turn suggests that humans are not a part of nature. This conundrum then dictates everything – not only how humans might abuse, control or master nature but thwart one’s attempts to help, heal, or save nature and ourselves.

How then should one envision humanity’s place in the natural world? I’m not sure, but it surely starts with the simple premise that humanity is capable of some awe inspiring wonders and equally horrific crimes against each other in the world we live in.

Stock used:
- Swamp landscape from *AustriaAngloAlliance

very unique indeed...makes me instantly think of the movie Inception how they can bend their reality in the dream to make it whatever they want it to be.......the mix of an urban city with the forest defiantly speaks volumes for itself as well........showing that industry and nature are both sides of the same coin.........and with a title like Separation of State i am left to think of the government in which the church and state are separated from each other yet in this context it means the state of the world in which it flows........from organic to industrial.......all and all this was a very great piece not only to look at but the flow of it and the ideas it inspires........great work
