    “My latest installation titled Urban Kudzu explores ideas related to people and their disconnection from the natural world… In my own experience with the world, I have a deep rooted understanding of what the plastic feels like, of what manmade materials and spaces feel like, and tend to perceive the natural world through a very exotic lens,” Wagner said. “With Urban Kudzu I wanted to explore colors that seemed more artificial or synthetic. Maybe fast forward 100 years, where plastic grows by itself?”
