Conservatory

In Conservatory, over 700 doilies have been fastened to the inside walls of the 9 foot high dome, lit from outside. Visitors enter through a doorway and are immediately engaged by the incredible variety of luminous patterns. Like a botanical conservatory, the dome of doilies is a space for preservation, observation, and contemplation. It offers viewers the opportunity to examine the individual specimens and marvel at their intricate designs while giving them a chance to reflect on the relationship between nature and culture.
