The Allure of the Concentric: Installation Documentation

1985, 9:42 min, color, sound

A fusion of landscape and architecture, this installation is the culmination of the series In the Planet of the Eye. Myers establishes a natural environment — a reflecting pool, trees and rocks — within the technologically proscribed confines of metal towers, gates and video monitors, on which are seen images of the American Southwest. Contemplating themes of renewal and regeneration from ancient mythology and magic, this work evokes cyclical patterns of existence and imagination, the rational and the intuitive, the natural and the cultural.
