“In order to integrate the print with the piece, we printed the portrait on a skin of plastic bags in a subdued blue. The face was layered in sewn and melted bags of varying colors to accentuate the tones of the face.”

“Uroboros Project is a collaborative effort between artists Rachel
Lowing and Gaia. Spawned from a mutual interest in articulating the
inexorably intertwined relationship between people and nature, we
examine the act of consumption and its implications on contemporary
life.

The urban environment is an organism whose growth is dictated by the
symbiotic relationship between the city and it’s inhabitants. It is
the ideology and laws of society manifest, yet simultaneously it obeys
basic, natural properties of formation and development that is shared
by all sentient creatures.

By considering our connection and correspondence with the city, we
come closer to understanding the purgatory between nature and culture
that defines our internal struggle as human beings.
Collaborate
Late Latin collaboratus, past participle of collaborare to labor
together, from Latin com- + laborare to labor — more at labor
1 : to work jointly with others or together especially in an
intellectual endeavor: to cooperate with an agency or instrumentality
with which one is not immediately connected.

Uroboros is a circular symbold depicting a snake, or less commonly a dragon, swallowing its tail, as an emblem of wholeness, totality or infinity.”
