What do you see in a work of art? How hard do you dare to look?

Inspired by Hieronymus Bosch’s Haywain Triptych, Constellations and Microclimates explores what lies beyond the inevitable collapse of our personal relationships and the civilizations we call home. A graverobber on the run, a young American businessman lost in Shanghai’s opaque world of deal-making, a “professional” Chinese mistress forced to choose between material comforts or her self-worth, and a long-distance trader from Tenochtitlan who regrets making the “acquisition of a lifetime” share a commonality of the deepest consequence—the human experience. Multiple plot lines and settings reveal how fragile all of our lives are—regardless of time or place. Organized into three main narratives, or “panels,” thematically related to one another, Constellations and Microclimates unfolds in locations as diverse as present-day China, a desert society shrouded in the mystery of antiquity, and the Valley of Mexico on the eve of the Conquest, while remaining focused on troubling questions about the interactions between individuals and the societies created in their likenesses.

Garrison finished Constellations and Microclimates in late 2014.
