Mara Marxt Lewis and Tyler Lewis

Mara Marxt Lewis and Tyler Lewis both come from places where an ongoing dialogue with the surrounding nature is a facet of everyday life. The towering alps of Austria and the lush temperate rainforests in Washington State are landscapes that demand respect; the mountains will surprise with breath-taking landscapes and powerful weather conditions, and the green forests densely-packed with trees that are hundreds of years old filter the air while an abundance of life thrives beneath their canopies. The close connection with their natural environment informs the multimedia work that they develop in collaboration, and their interest in how we relate to our environment is clearly perceptible in their creative process.
