Shift member Karey Kessler was recently commissioned by Meta Open Arts to create a mural for the Meta Reality Labs in Redmond, WA. Her mural is titled Perhaps a map: the topography of Redmond and the interconnectedness of the universe.
The topographic elements on the mural play with how clouds sometimes look like mountains and how contour lines sometimes look like waves and wood grain and sometimes ripples in a pond. The mural is about the interconnectedness of the world — how we are deeply interconnected both to each other and to the plants and animals and even the inanimate objects around us- ultimately, everything is made from the same star dust.
