Terrarium functions as a foil to the domesticated space of the park, a pocket of wilderness and biodiversity within the city, encouraging viewers to look at the overlooked and to be aware of the complex wilderness growing in the peripheries.
The installation is unassuming during the daytime but takes on otherworldly qualities at night with the activation of pink LED grow lights and a sound installation by Michael Durek. The score features minimal, droning sounds reminiscent of the hums and tones that form the background of our sonic experience of cities, while occasionally becoming more cinematic and tonal. The skillful layering of these elements makes them seem almost natural.
Ultimately, this project is about what is undervalued from our daily urban environment, how our value systems interact with both humans and non-humans, and, as Gary Snyder wondered, “where do we start to resolve the dichotomy of the civilized and the wild?”
