Second Order

The past two years I have focused my attention on places where different orders coexist. I visited botanical gardens, zoos and parks, places that are deliberate interpretations of nature. Yet I also found spontaneous manifestations of layered orders at construction sites, in industrial and (sub)urban areas. In everyday life we are blind to these intermingled orders, because when we look at our surroundings, we only see meanings. It might not quite be possible to show the thing-in-itself. But, through photography, I hope to render the world ambiguously enough to change how we view our second order.
