Nature’s Afterlives with Gabriela Albergaria & Jorge Otero-Pailos

The work of Otero-Pailos (Spain/U.S.) investigates the intersection of nature and architecture, using liquid latex as a form of building conservation technology that collects microscopic deposits of dust and human interactions in sheets of translucent rubber.

Together, Albergaria and Otero-Pailos seek to engage the viewer in the pattern, rhythm, and materials of nature.
