David Brooks

David Brooks is an artist whose work investigates how cultural concerns cannot be divorced from the natural world, while also questioning the terms under which nature is perceived and utilized. Often working with biologists in the Amazon basin, the artist draws parallels between a cross-disciplinary scientific process and an artistic desire to question how we engage the living world. Brooks lives and works between New York and New Orleans, is on the faculty of the Maryland Institute College of Art, and is currently a Smithsonian Artist Research Fellow.  (davidbrooksstudio.com)
