To Give Life Anew
Natalie Field Photography
Through my work I explore the cyclical nature of life and decay, as they feed into each other to create a sense of homeostasis in the natural world.
All life exists in this constant state of flux.
I believe that creation (the physical world, including our bodies) and consciousness (the immaterial force of life) are a single energy. And this energy is the soul. Einstein’s first law of thermodynamics states that energy cannot be created or destroyed, it can only be changed from one form to another. This is in line with the concept that the soul is immortal. Through this image I wish to celebrate this infinite cycle of life, and alleviate the fear of death. For, in time, this energy that was once you will transmute to form new life.
To me, this continuation of the life-force is the transmigration of the soul.
