“Neutral Gravity Field” is part of the “Terraforming” series. The images consist of fabricated large-scale dioramas constructed out of materials, such as Styrofoam, plaster, and dirt. These environments encourage the spectator to stand in subjective relation to the landscape. The resulting images consider the human experience and ponder our origins, our destiny, and our place in the universe.
