Attention is what creates value.
Andrew Zientek is an artist, licensed landscape architect, and educator. His work spans in scale from held object to inhabitable place and oscillates between art, science and landscape / architecture.
In all endeavors, the focus of work is the connection and displacement between people and their local environments. Local environment is meant to include natural systems, urban spaces, cultural history, and interpersonal interactions.
