Laboratory for Other Worlds was installed at the Bellevue Arts Museum from 2022-2023. It explored our connection to the more-than-human world of plants and microbes through the lens of the Environmental Humanities, an interdisciplinary area of study that combines art, philosophy, and science. This exhibition is a series of imagination exercises to de-center the human individual and to create space for non-human perspectives. Viewers are invited to push past the limits of objectivity and rationality to experience the installation as a set of tools or devices for understanding expanded ways of being with the wider world.


The installation is in four parts: Cthonos (a multimedia video installation), Plant Communication Devices, Psychic Corporeal Maps, and the Study Center. Photographs by Mark Woods Studio, Seattle, WA
