Terra Cognita - Urban Jungle
Although we continue to cherish a desire for wild nature, man has become used to the complete adaptation of the natural environment to his wishes. Bonsai trees are on the one hand an extreme form of control that is exercised over nature, but behind the growing of bonsai lies a yearning for knowledge of and contact with nature. In that sense they are a metaphor for our search for a different relation with the natural environment.
