In 2010, Catherine Nelson developed a series of work titled Future Memories which captured the essence of place as a complex ecological story. In 2020, Nelson’s revisited this concept, reinforcing her ongoing engagement with the environment while offering a plea to consider humanity’s destructive impact on the planet. Her works comprise thousands of montages images to create worlds where plants and animals thrive in utopian gardens. Increasingly, her works verge on sci-fi, presenting environments which are possible only in the imagination. In an interview about her new series, Nelson says “I wanted to highlight what we have now and what we cannot take for granted anymore – or they will become the memories of our future. We are nature, so our ability to destroy it is a self-destructive.”
