Vaughn Bell

I love exploring in the woods. I am particularly fond of coming across those emerald-green, mossy mini micro environments that have so much life…it takes me into another world. Vaughn Bell has captured that feeling for me with his Village Green biosphere like installation. He has built house shaped terrariums with a hole in the flooring for the viewer  to poke their head through and be at eye level with the mossy world of wonder. He has even created some that allow two people to be in it at the same time.

I saw his exhibition two summers ago at MASS MoCA in North Adams, MA and it is still very clear in my mind. After the exhibit I was ready to go home and build one so I could experience it on a daily basis.
