Marine’s Visual Arts Exhibition, “Lost Effect Cause Found” explores the role of manmade environments in a world with rapidly changing weather and landscapes. The work is driven by questions such as, “Do manmade landscapes and the conservation of natural environments work against each other as solutions to changing climates?” and “What options are available for maintaining beautiful landscapes and growing enough food as we race against the clock?” The complexity of our relationship to the natural world, and the unknowable effects of our actions, inspired her work.
