WOEBEGONE GARDEN

SOLO EXHIBITION BY EMILY TARNER

The planet of the Woebegones is an old planet. Their world was once much more alive. Overtime, the environment began to change, until only the ancestors of the Woebegones, a type of extremophile, were able to survive. With no competition they spread around their world and put more energy into developing a wide range of colors and patterns to attract mates. As the generations passed, they became more and more sentient. Millennia after their world died, the Woebegones woke up. Only to realize they were alone. Overcome by ennui, the Woebegones wander the wastes, unable or unwilling to change their circumstances.
