When Nature Forgets is an exploration of physical representations of the human form in historical and cultural displays. It focuses on dummies, mannequins and dolls in museums and historical theme-parks, the places where history and culture are recreated and presented back to us as entertainment. In the act of physical representation, humans inevitably reveal layers of meaning beyond the simple factual information they intend. Plural, even contradictory truths are the tragic and hilarious result especially when the ostensible justification for the constructions is educational - the edification of history and the proud expression of national myth and values.
