In response to the Prospect 4 theme, “The Lotus in Spite of the Swamp”, FERTILE, refers to the capability of producing and the opportunity to develop. Despite extreme adversity, life finds a way….extreme events like fire and flood are often followed by renewal and rebirth. Humans harness the power of nature with control burning and irrigation to redirect resources. In a similar way, artists respond to the stimuli of their surroundings, drawing on the events and phenomenon to create.
