We want our sculptures to have a part in influencing the ecological balance of compromised environments. We are compelled by the idea of using sculpture in a way that will allow the damaged areas of a watershed to reestablish themselves. As it has evolved, our art has become focused on strategically congregating sculptural components made from riparian materials back into the watershed system. They are intended to give advantage to the natural system, and after a period of time, as the restoration process is established, the artists' presence shall no longer be felt.
