Rendezvous draws parallels between the lush environment of the terrarium and public spaces where people interact and gather through a reimagined replica of a thriving habitat bringing together peculiar objects such as shower roses, faux plants, wood and gravel. These familiar objects embellished with rhinestones glimmer even as they remain enclosed behind glass, offering a covert glint of promise. This work continues Khairullah Rahim’s observations of the latent potential that public spaces hold and how they can be transformed through the interactions of various communities.
