Losing the Unique explores the decline of our natural environment, reassessing man’s multifaceted anthropogenic ecological identity. The call of an entire species becomes silent when we stand to loose the unique voice of the individual. Both artists are completing Post Graduate studies at Monash University.

“The ancient Mariner inhospitably killeth the pious bird of good omen.”

Losing the Unique combines the works of Jasmine Targett and Debbie Symons, who are both currently completing Post Graduate studies at Monash University Caulfield (Faculty of Art and Design, Monash University). The works explore the multi-faceted anthropogenic ecological identity, with its concerns in the archiving and documentation of the natural environment, and, the consequentiality of these actions. As we discuss the depth of our history and reassess our future, we must not stand to silence the call of an entire species and loose the uniqueness of an individual voice. The works seek to discuss the conundrum of our ecological situation and reflect on the relationship between man and nature.

“The insufferable arrogance of human beings to think that Nature was made solely for their benefit, as if it was conceivable that the sun had been set afire merely to ripen men’s apples and head their cabbages .”
