The above slide show follows the evolution of the displays which accompanied performances of Undercurrents & Exchange in February 2009. In conjunction with the performances, dioramas created by Zach Morris, housed in vitrines throughout the WFC, highlighted the complicated web of historical, cultural, environmental and social facets that make the complex what it is. Each vitrine was divided into four 'scenes,' creating playful, evolving stories that visually reiterated the theme: That seemingly isolated and disconnected elements have the possibility to connect in fantastical and dream-like ways.
