Contained has at its center an acrylic dome with a scale model of Chicago inside. Every 40 minutes a sun and moon complete a full rotation around this mechanical microcosm. Underneath the city electronic and mechanical elements control lighting effects within the model. Within the dome “smog” created by ultrasonic humidifiers emits from the highway and the nearby coal fired power station. This three-dimensional landscape has a looping time composition that approximates and condenses our daily cycle. This work was inspired by the now closed Fisk Energy coal fired power station near Daniel Miller’s previous home and studio in Chicago, IL.
