Second Nature Project Jody Dunphy
Susun interviews Jody Dunphy.
Jody is an artist, designer and the creator of the Second Nature Project; an endeavor that resides at the intersection of art and activism. The project was born while she was earning her MFA in Applied Craft and Design at the Oregon College of Art and Craft + Pacific Northwest College of Art. Her practice is driven by a desire to share her fascination with plant life and inspire people to think about their relationship with the natural world. She makes jewelry and sculpture for holding plants and seeds that are dispersed via diverse channels: in galleries, on the street and through retail. Collaboration, engagement, ephemerality, labor and craft are underlying themes in the work she creates.
