Bordering on the fantastic, Senescent Vivarium represents four distinct seasons created by plants and insects selected to imitate authentic biospheres. These macro worlds are architectural masters of their own domain yet defy traditional still life representations. Transient narratives of familiar ecological cycles are pushed further into supernatural territory by the effects of hand processed 16mm black and white film, and a deeply atmospheric, magnetic sound score.
