Through the Eyes of Pando Exhibit

On Labor Day weekend in 2020, a socially distanced exhibit "Through the Eyes of Pando" opened to the public in the Richfield Visitor Center in Utah. Featuring photos taken over 4 years while photographing the Pando, the world’s largest tree, the exhibit featured three large scale works and four small works detailing research, the ecosystem and the tree's unique nature. In 2021, while working with the local leadership, I will help design and install a permanent large scale installation here about the tree to help educate the public.⁠
