The Wilderness of Mirrors

Keith Langergraber

Taking the Monument 83 fire tower located in E.C. Manning Park as a starting point, The Wilderness of Mirrors explores architecture in relationship to personal utopias. These notions of geographies  are tied to places of isolation, conjuring up periods of creativity as well as loneliness, alienation, and moral disintegration. Through sculptural installations, large scale drawings, and a short film, Keith Langergraber weaves concepts of personal geography, utopias, and loneliness against a larger backdrop of shifting ecology driven by climate change and borders both real and imagined.
