Rodell Warner’s artwork is deeply rooted in the exploration of race, nature, and technologies of representation. Fifteen Terrariums is a selection from Warner’s 2020–21 expansive series TERRARIA that examines preservation and community in the space of Web 3. Each Terrarium is composed of a hand-drawn virtual 3D model of a plant, drawn from life, encased in a translucent vessel, digitally preserving something of the form of the plant. The artist began this series of shimmering encased species found in The Caribbean region, by photographing plant species he encountered as studies to bring into 3D form. Warner’s delicate virtual modeling is an act of preservation and resilience.
