At once both lush and ordered,Tangle celebrates being immersed in an environment where perspective is always changing. Inspired by the explorer and naturalist Alexander von Humboldt's belief that the world is one living organism,Tangle is a web ripe for exploration, emphasizing the meaning generated in shared experience. The installation is comprised of organic, dimensional forms that conjure a joyful fictional biome where suddenly the connection between the unseen and the colossal surrounding us is immediately and colorfully apparent.
