Intrarubeus Rhizoshere is an installation that questions the relationship between our interior and exterior environment. A hybrid human body and tree, roots are conformed with veins, tree rings with arteries and the scale is distorted as both microscopic and gigantic. Structures turn on the ceiling as well as within the tree. Light from the exterior pours in and creates a red landscape on the walls of the space, taking us into an planet-like environment. The second room presents a turning axe, a pole dance converted into a veiny pillar. Video projections project the artist dancing within the roots, revealing the spirit of the tree within us. This piece represents the physical hybrid of human/tree but also exists in a metaphysical world, exploring the duel spirituality within the two environments.
