The rise and fall of culture nestled within the resilient and morphing context of nature is the musing of this multimedia installation. Playing off of his frequent use of architecture, illusion, and ephemeral materials, Brent incorporates motion, surveillance, and sound in this exhibition. Based loosely on a distant variation of both the model of the zoetrope, created in China around 180 AD, and the magic lantern of 1558, the artist has made a simple looped environment with a loosely connected, but dark narrative. Like the prisoners described in Plato's Cave, observers are privy to projections of imagery on a wall. Instead of reality being shifted as it is cast as shadow, a partially fabricated view of history and nature is cast as reality. In the brief, one-minute journey to the soundtrack of tropical birds and a distant battle, we visit an anonymous mountain terrain, a desolate but seemingly magical forest, various military bunkers, and Le Corbusier’s Unite d’Habitation in Marseille.
