Peter Whittenberger – Haven – United States
Inspired by the Truckee River Basin of the Sierra Nevada, Haven explores the competition for resources and the responsibility of balance in natural habitats. The work reflects the impact of overpopulation and a desire to live in competing habitats, destroying the homes of all species.
Peter Whittenberger is an interdisciplinary artist whose work explores how the nature of the landscape serves as a continuous network of time and history, containing the data of all Earth’s species. Growing up in Eastern Montana, Whittenberger received his BFA from the University of Montana, Missoula, and his MFA from the University of Nevada, Reno.
