You are in a lush forest, and a pile of leaves rustles to life in front of you, stands up, and walks away. What is happening here?

Nature Suits is a video installation exploring the space between seen and unseen. Camouflaged in a forested scene, artists reveal the undeniable likeness of humans and nature—natural and artificial—through acts of making, performance, documentation, and display.

Borrowing from an adapted method of military camouflage, Nature Suits are constructed on-site by artists using a mix of found natural items and manmade materials, placing artists in a liminal state of hiding and revealing, shifting viewers’ perception of the forest.

Nature Suits reimagines camouflage as an instrument for revealing the hybridity of the human and the “natural,” working within the layered qualities of biological and social ecologies and the liminal, in-between spaces between humans and nature. Re-imagining a military tactic typically used in scenarios of offensive violence, the work attempts to combine the human and the natural as a protest to unite these two worlds.
