Instrument for Mediated Terrain
Thorne Gallery
Keene, New Hampshire

Collaborator, Blyth Hazen
Robotic and
Interactive Installation
These gardens are a place to visit and contemplate the balance between machines and the natural environment. The installation allows us the opportunity to observe a series of small landscapes. It is reminiscent of Bonsai (the Japanese art of arranging miniature trees, or Suiseki, (the Japanese art of collecting small rocks that look like mountain formations.)
Instrument for Mediated Terrain uses moss to identify natural phenomena in a similar way. Like Bonsai, these gardens are alive and continue to grow. However, moss does not suggest the aesthetics of an individual garden with specific elements like a tree, but rather, the smaller scale of Suiseki, which suggests a more universal landscape. <<  >>
