By Nature's Own Demise is a wearable sculpture series illustrating the mountain pine beetle epidemic in North America. Originally a symbiotic relationship where pine beetles would kill off old and weak trees to help regenerate the forest, climate change has drastically upset this balance. The increased warmer weather and dry conditions has led to the reproduction of more pine beetles and now even the healthy trees are susceptible to attack.
