Nature V Nature
How has nature changed? More specifically, how was the American idea of nature formed? The Puritans thought of nature as a city on a hill, a place of freedom and joy but at the same time a place of harshness, fear and evil, a place where witches would wait in the wild. As the country grew and the population moved west, we looked at nature as something that should be made into an agrarian image, tamed and conquered. At the end of the 19th century, ideas arose that nature should be something that is preserved and saved. This was exemplified in the founding of our first national parks. This EP is our attempt at exploring the changing views of nature in our society.
