Luminous | Rachel Stableford

July 7 – August 1, 2021

Luminous is a sculptural installation shedding light on the way wildlife is affected by changing environmental conditions on earth. Amphibians are considered a key indicator species of the fact that our entire ecosystem is in danger. Over one hundred lifesize sculptures of different frog species glow in the darkness of this installation to remind us of this impending threat and invite the viewer to meditate with them and experience their message.
