Dana Fritz

The photographs of Professor Dana Fritz in the current Duluth Art Institute Exhibition "Terraria Gigantica: World Under Glass," peer into the complicated world of artificial environments. It is also the name of her recent book. From Biosphere 2, built in the '90s (yes, it still exists) to the worlds largest desert at the Henry Doorly Zoo, her images reflect both the incongruity and the educational and research benefits of these "human-created" natural worlds.
