Work > perhaps a map: contour lines of Redmond and the interconnectedness of the universe, Meta Reality Labs

Perhaps a map: the topography of Redmond and the interconnectedness of the universe, commissioned by Meta Open Arts, Meta Reality Labs, Redmond, WA.

This mural is about the interconnectedness of the world- the way pandemics and pollution and even wars defy boundaries and borders.

How we are deeply interconnected both to each other and to the plants and animals and even the inanimate objects around us- ultimately, everything is made from the same star dust.

The mural is also about how we live in this historical time of now but we also live in the deep time of geology and the slow time of trees.

The topographic elements on this mural play with how clouds sometimes look like mountains and how contour lines sometimes look like waves and wood grain; traces of wood boring beetles and sometimes ripples in a pond.
