Christina Seely: terra systema . tempo
Video installation at the Media Room. Seely's most recent body of work transmogrifies the tropical rainforest and the melt of the Greenland ice sheet into respective respiratory and circulatory systems, scaling the planetary to the human body. The two series come together in terra? ?systema? ?.? ?tempo?, a video installation that sets footage of each region on opposite walls, placing the viewer at the center of a kinetic conversation between two ecological systems that bookend the temperate zone where most of the first world lives.
