Possible Worlds by Lauren Carroll Harris
Possible Worlds is an installation, a room-sized abstracted nylon sculpture of a melting glacier which viewers step into. Ecotone is a concept that explains the overlapping zone between two ecosystems, an unbordered terrain where boundaries merge and ecologies come into tension. Possible Worlds is a type of transitional ecotone where the white-cube art gallery and threatened arctic environment co-exists. It’s an effort to transform an entire space into a new environment that subsumes the audience. And so, the audience completes the work, not me.
