“Technological nature”, or digital representations of nature, make us feel good by triggering our innate “biophilia,” a term for humanity’s inborn, primordial aliation with the environment. We seek these nature alternatives as society urbanises and wild places become harder to access. Yet there is a limit to the extent digital representations of nature can provide the soothing, restorative, creativity-enhancing benefits of an embodied experience of nature. By pursuing technological nature, we are becoming increasingly alienated from the real thing, growing to accept a digital substitute for engagement with the wild, and compromising our fundamental aliation for the environment. Research shows that using psychedelics is associated with an increased sense of being connected to nature, of feeling interconnected to everything around us, even long after the experience itself has taken place. These synergies might provide an opportunity to instil a deeper sense of reverence and care for the wider biosphere and life that we share this planet with. Indeed, shamanic cultures have used psychedelics for thousands of years to communicate and find balance with nature. The Sunny Daze series brings together these themes through trippy, psychedelic, nature photography. Danielle took this macro photograph using a kaleidoscope lens. Limited Edition of 10 + AP

I am a London born and raised new media artist. Having worked as an outsider artist for many years I completed an MA in Fine Art Digital at Camberwell College of Arts, University of Arts London in 2020. I received a Distinction for my MA research project and was also awarded the Mercer Arts Award for academic achievement. My work explores altered states of consciousness through photography, video, and audio-visual installation. By engaging with the properties of ink, water, and light – dispersing, diffusing, diffracting, and embracing the unexpected – I have developed a practice of “meditation-in-action”. Through photography and film, I solidify these visual meditations, so I may elongate, interpret, and share my experiences. Informed by psychology and perception theory I am interested in the impacts of sensory stimulation upon how we perceive our inner and outer worlds. Photos and videos are pushed through multiple modes of transformation, using both analogue and digital processes – layering, reflecting, stretching, scaling, and looping – each process bringing new depths to my illusions which surprise and delight.
