Sophie Guyot often addresses environmental themes, treated as metaphors for the general state of humanity. She regularly envisions huge spatial ambients that design-wise draw from nature and its habitats, but her frequent use of different industrial materials and artificial lighting introduces different semantic coordinates. Her projects, often monumentally big, thus recall a different perception of nature. The latter one in her work often receives a poetic and flawless substance that charms the spectators and enhances their awareness of the world around them.
