Nurture & Nature
Along with questioning societal interactions and the self, Nurture & Nature examines the human condition by reconfiguring scenarios that occur on a day to day basis. In juxtaposing stereotypes and domesticity with the cute and gross, Nurture & Nature creates a gallery size curiosity similar to that of a Renaissance Cabinet of Curiosity encouraging scientific investigation.
Some scientists think that people behave as they do according to genetic predispositions or even "animal instincts." This is known as the "nature" theory of human behavior. Other scientists believe that people think and behave in certain ways because they are taught to do so. This is known as the "nurture" theory of human behavior.
