Subtle Habitat

I coined the term “subtle habitat” to describe a kind of artwork.

I used “habitat” to mean “places” and “subjects.”

By “places,” I mean a space like a room, a forest, or a city.

By “subjects,” I mean the stories associated with those spaces.

To create a “subtle habitat” is to work on these two levels, revealing non-obvious emotions and thoughts.

Unstable Components

A “subtle habitat” is a system of components.

The components are elements of the whole and, at the same time, independent works of art. Because of this dual nature, but not limited to this quality, I called the components “unstable components.”
