The drama in this piece is alluring. In this theater of nature, Yellin encapsulates the perilous interface between the natural world and the manmade one: the “great chain of being” is frozen in motion in an aquarium-like 3-D painting as it circulates through a body constructed of collaged images of skyscrapers. Here, we anticipate the continuing disaster of climate change, but it is out of our reach.
