Work from her oeuvre.
“Diana Thater’s video installations describe a technologically mediated nature while revealing the mechanics of media representation. Thater has applied red, green, and blue colored gels—representing the elemental palette of video—to the glass walls of the museum’s café, transforming the entire space chromatically while at the same time, introducing us to her working means. The video projections inside the café and in the Museum of Natural History’s Botany Hall are both site-specific works that continue Thater’s thematic focus on relationships among animals, human beings, and technology and the near-impossibility of experiencing nature outside the influences of culture.” – CMOA
