In the early 1900s, Oenothera lamarckiana, the evening primrose, was central to the debate over the cause of evolution and its subsequent mutations. This immersive installation, situated in the former industrial space of Dimension’s gallery, explores how future mutants might survive in fragmented ecosystems. Demolition rubble collected onsite and reclaimed materials from area construction projects serve as the foundation for a botanically-inspired habitat that offers hope for biological regeneration in the wake of nonstop urban development.
