Jenn Egelfeld (b. 1995) Fair Lawn, NJ; is a multidisciplinary artist who works in book making, papermaking, digital fabrication, and socially engaged collaboration. Being from a small town in New Jersey, less than an hour from New York City (later moving to Tampa), Jenn has always had a relationship with heavily built urban environments, as well as well-groomed suburban landscapes. With growing concern over climate change and environmental degradation, she sought to explore the roles of human ecosystems in degrading–but also enhancing–their natural surroundings and the lives of their inhabitants. Interested in the way humans perceive nature as separate from themselves or their creations, she works to bridge that gap by likening architecture and the built landscape to botanical specimens, comparing the two, while criticizing the divide that destroys individual agency to bring about change.
