CELESTIAL, TERRESTRIAL (2018)
For the duration of Celestial, Terrestrial Bobby Darin’s Beyond the Sea played on repeat, slowed from 136 to 18 BPM; for a more accurate representation of the atmosphere of the night please listen while browsing.
Celestial, Terrestrial (2018) was a two night event that took place at the Maryland Space Grant Observatory at Johns Hopkins University. The exhibition sought to bridge the gap between Baltimore’s art and science communities while providing a platform for critical discussion of our relationship to, and place within the cosmos. The two-part exhibition was host to a group show I curated on the deck and a solo show of my work within the observatory. Inside the Observation dome I spun an immersive installation that celebrates the space and its telescope as a surreal juncture of Earth and cosmos; where we can experience out there and right here directly and concurrently.
Below is a group show I curated on the Observatory deck featuring the work of artists Tony Auth, Marissa Fein, Lucas Haroldsen and Nick Vyssotsky and myself.
