The installation by Heleen Blanken is a construction depicting the myriad interactions between geological structures and the earth’s atmosphere. In a subtle way, the work re-imagines the friction felt by the changing perception of what we find natural or artificial in our world. Terrene contains different layers of natural phenomena that play with this friction. Terrene was presented at ADE in 2016 as the centerpiece of the 17th-century courtyard of the Rembrandthuis Museum, Rembrandt's former home in Amsterdam. The work was accompanied by soundtrack by Peter van Hoesen.
