Dolatian’s interdisciplinary practice explores the relationship between cultural
landscapes and the natural ecosystem. A hybrid ecosystem simultaneously resembles a
semi-functional apparatus, the model of a utopian city, and a biological experiment. It
also conflates a number of ideas around the themes of the studio and the laboratory and
in turn social and environmental politics.
