dc.description.abstract Humans are inextricably linked to the ecosystems they inhabit. The making of artifacts in our environment invariably changes the trajectory of already mutable systems, affecting change in both nature and culture. This change is sometimes calculated and deliberate, at other times it is unintentional and unforeseen. Where humans have caused blight to ecosystems, restoration ecologists attempt to assuage human-induced losses by copying or even re- inventing nature. Copying or re-inventing nature is as natural as nature itself. Nature itself copies. Nature copies itself. Artifacts of Nature is an investigation into the vestiges of human making, the disposition of materials and (in) time, and the dynamic and ever-changing order that is nature. The design component for the project, a trout hatchery, is for the purpose of reintroducing an extirpated cutthroat species into 18 miles of native stream in east-central Nevada.
