Legacy

In Legacy, a VR and AR experience in 360°, Nancy Baker Cahill aims to address the current threats of climate change and gentrification. The artwork illustrates these entropic forces by animating an abstracted tree as it twists, breaks apart, and coalesces. Formally the drawing transitions from organic bark-like marks, to inorganic, metaphorically urban, glass and mirror fragments. Using original digital mark making to render organic forms underscores the artist's intention to highlight unnatural developments of all kinds. Legacy prompts discoveries related to the (re)evolution of nature, and the accelerated consequences of human intervention and impact.
