Dana Fritz: "Terraria Gigantica: the World Under Glass"

Friday, March 08 - 9:00AM to 9:45AM
Red Lacquer

Terraria Gigantica explores three of the world's largest enclosed landscapes that stand as working symbols of our current and complex relationship with the natural world. While the technical and aesthetic demands of their missions informed their physical design, the required juxtapositions of natural and artificial elements also generate unintentionally striking visual paradoxes. In the liminal spaces of corners and margins, these seeming opposites meet and overlap, bleed together, or collide and resist. The visual richness of these small details leads to big questions about the future of nature and what it means to create and contain landscapes.
