Maciek Jasik A corrupt nature

In , from A Corrupt Nature our traditional viewpoint of Las Vegas is flipped.

“Our focus is sets of lonely, forgotten trees and strange piles of detritus resembling pyramids, the casinos far in the background. Immediately, we’re reminded of the barren landscape that preceded our arrival. Through the use of color, these elements transcend their ordinary appearance and become symbols of Nature’s inherent power and endurance, patiently outlasting eras and species.

Once it was established that God was separate from Nature, Western civilisation took a headlong turn into dominating and subjugating Nature. We can see that Manifest Destiny and its agricultural corollary ‘Rain follows the plow’ in the American West built upon this myth, imagining Nature submitting wilfully to man’s instruments of control.” – Maciek Jasik “A Corrupt Nature”.
