moistscape Installation, Henry Urbach Gallery, New York NY

As an opportunity to explore the play of the natural within the artificial, we constructed a three-dimensional steel matrix inset with panels of living mosses and enclosed within by translucent volume.
The spatial configuration of these verdant planes - they vary in size, height and proximity to the visitor - creates a range of possible encounters. There is no designated path to follow, rather a space to explore where the underside is as telling as the topside. Moistscape allows visitors to experience the play in scale from the miniature of the floating mossy landscape to the actual one of the installation as a whole.
