Karrie Hovey自述:
作为一个研究型的、有明确场景指向的装置艺术家,令我感兴趣的是:一个人造的空间如何能让我们习以为常的期望发生动摇,并且如何与我们周遭的环境相互作用。 所做的调查已经让我对人文景观和自然环境之间的共生关系有了一定的认识,但日益增长的全球贸易、不同的消费习惯、以及这些消费行为所导致的后果,还是让我好奇不已。
目前我仍在重造各种自然景观…作品“花园植物”所用的材料均为我们日常丢弃的一次性商品…“花园植物”系列使用的材料主要有塑料、废纸、纸板、以及零售商丢弃的展示材料。人们的消费习惯所产生的废物数量大得惊人,并且还在随着各季商品的频繁更新在不断增加。我用来创作作品的材料都取自人们熟知并且竞相追逐的各种品牌商品。
人们期望以金钱购买“美貌”、拥有“最新”、引领“时尚”的无休止的贪欲,已经让自身远离了自然世界和有机的自我循环,取而代之的只有消耗、浪费。[/lang_zh]

Artist Statement:
As a research-based, site-specific installation artist, I am interested in how a manufactured or created space can destabilize our customary expectations of and interactions with our environment. My investigations have led me to explore the symbiotic relationship between the human landscape and the natural environment. I am intrigued by the impact of global trade, patterns of consumer culture, and the aftermath of our consumption.
Currently, I am re-creating natural landscapes …the Garden Grows is constructed from the bi-products of our buy-product disposable society. …the Garden Grows series primarily uses plastics, paper, cardboard, and display materials that have been cast aside by retailers. The waste-stream generated from our consumer culture is immense and expanding with the release of each passing season’s wears. The brand-name goods we recognize and covet emerge as the source materials used to create the work.
 
Our insatiable desire to purchase “beauty,” to own the “latest,” and to obtain the “new” has removed us from the natural cycle, an organic cycle of renewal, and has replaced it with one of consumption and waste.[/lang_en]
