Tectonic Construction by Andreea Vasile 1

by Andreea Vasile Hoxha (MLA ’20)

Landscape deeply engages with the materiality of the site, where tectonics offer multiple scales and processes for observation and manipulation. Tectonic Construction encapsulates a series of material samples collected in Franklin Park for further observation of aging and decay. The use of moss, lichen, and soil display a range of dynamic processes within days of being collected and enclosed with gel wax, while the rocks and dried grass seem to be frozen in time.
