Dioramas, 2017

Residency and solo show, Black & White Projects, San Francisco, CA

I love natural history museums and wanted to construct my own dioramas that stretch forwards and backwards through time. I re-contextualized animations from Aspects of Geological Time in an installation that allowed me to experiment with materiality and intent, made use of the gallery's architectural elements, and positioned the viewer in ways that mimicked the acts of looking at nature.
