Artist Project / Much Was Decided When You Were Born

Mariele Neudecker

Neudecker’s project, commissioned for the issue, features a fish bowl, water, salt solution, GAC100 acrylic, a panoramic mountain postcard, and cardboard. These modest materials produce an effect that at once stages and exposes the impulse behind the traditional Romantic depictions of the Mountain Sublime.
