Umfelt-Inwelt, Frauenmuseum, Bonn, Germany.
Diana's work looks at the relationship between mankind and the environment and focuses on the invisible life that is all around us. As human beings we tend to believe that what we can see is what exists in our environment. We cannot see what is in the air and when the wind transports millions of tiny particles, we do not see them. Dust, pollen and seeds are carried invisibly for thousands of miles. The planet is totally dependant upon these for spreading trees and grasses, plants and micro-organisms.
And most of us do not notice.
The installation is a collection of wind borne seeds and pollen collected throughout the year in England, Scotland, France and Germany. They are displayed in petri dishes on a mirror set on a long white plinth. The other work shown emphasises a human presence in the environment. The photographs are a collaboration with Bonn photographer Maresa Jung.
