This installation made of several amorphous sculptures covered with natural, yet mass manufactured moss, takes its cue from Japanese Zen gardening. It provides an environment to contemplate the meeting place between nature and culture.

 

Kaleidoscopic prisms are embedded within the bulbous shapes. Images of outdoor landscapes can be found inside each facet drawing the viewer into an intimate, fragmented and picturesque world within worlds.

 

The pastoral landscapes that enter the exhibition space become new forms of fauna from a possible near future.
