The Pantheozone: Temple To The Ozone

1989

Site-specific installation for Creative Time’s Art in the Anchorage (Brooklyn Bridge Anchorage), June-August, 1989. The installation was proposed and created to address the issue of the fragility of life and specifically the hole forming in the ozone layer of the upper atmosphere.

One enters this scaled down version of the Pantheon through a portico of used refrigerators and air conditioners. Inside the greenhouse tent structure one is enveloped by a bubble of burgeoning life- a humid, fragrant, contemplative environment that includes: an ecosystem of trees and plants, a central gurgling pool with pipes emitting eucalyptus steam, a ring of grow lights, and niches containing large amphora. The whole scene is illuminated from above by a simulated sun (an intense light within a suspended satellite dish) that accentuates the oculus atop the greenhouse structure.
