By Vaughn Bell
Village Green is composed of suspended greenhouses that allow visitors to pop their heads inside the structure to experience a worm’s-eye view of the plants within. Our presence in these mini-ecosystems reminds us of the many ways we can interact with and connect to our landscape.
Vaughn Bell is a multimedia artist who explores questions of how landscapes are observed and stratified and how to connect to and experience the physical world around us. In an interview with our staff Bell ruminated on the ways Village Green brings us to a more personal awareness of landscape, on our understanding of constructs such as “natural” or “wild,” and on what makes the practice of an artist relevant to environmental issues.
