The project Nurture; Nature surveys climate fragility and ongoing technological advances, as well as humanity’s ever-changing relationship with the natural world. It is reminiscent of the fine line between order and chaos, speculating on what life would be like on planet Earth if everything were abandoned. Nature would eventually reclaim everything. Jacob Talbot is a multidisciplinary artist who manipulates analogue and digital photography alongside fine art-based multimedia pieces. The work uses a range of photographic genres, techniques and styles, fusing sculpture, interactive installation and more recently plants.
