In the Window
Celestial/Terrestrial is an ever-changing installation by Mariah Bergeron and Marieke Van Der Steenhoven.
This installation presents contrast and cohesion: looking at the space between light and dark and subterranean and sky with its contents revealing and obscuring layers corresponding with the cyclical passing of time and light. The entirety of the window acts as a diorama, divided by opposing environments, with the insertion of vignettes. The lower portion explores subterranean layers with scenes that emerge and fade with natural light and the manipulation of artificial light.
