The walls of the gallery are painted the same grey as the floor. The lights are low, dream-like, not completely dark. The architectural layout of the space is the armature for a sequence of experiences; some are mediated by video, others by digital drawings, text and furniture. The experiences are scenes that depict our presence in nature, and nature's presence in relationship to us. These scenes are derived from a made-up image, actualized in real space.
