Utilizing the habitat dioramas in the Mammals Hall of the former Grand Rapids Public Museum, I will create a site-specific installation, juxtaposing the existing landscapes of 12 dioramas built in the mid-20th century with contemporary architectural intervention. By doing so, I hope to explore what happens in an environment when a foreign object intrudes these fabricated “virtual” spaces first created by Louis Daguerre in 1822.
