The Order of the Primordial Biome was installed in the 2019 MFA Thesis exhibition, Fold. Fragment. Forum. It is an immersive installation encapsulating my interest in belief, trust, and ethical concerns as they interface with ecological crisis. This installation addresses the conflicting systems of belief between science and religion. In order to draw parallels and contradictions between these differing institutional systems, I incorporated visual cues from religious spaces and science laboratories to create both familiarity and a nuanced relationship to recognizable institutional spaces. I am interested in the role of truth, belief, and ethics as they relate to scientific advancement specifically in regards to the human body and climate change. This installation meshes aesthetic cues from Catholicism and scientific experimentation to create a forum for contemplation, mediation, prayer and speculation. The Order of the Primordial Biome investigates the relationships between these institutions as well as a subject’s relationship to each. The work also allows for the interrogation of a subject's relationship to religious belief systems in relation to their personal data, sacrifice, donation and ethical responsibility in the wake of bioengineering and ecological crisis.
