EcoArchive: Meditations on Time and Nature
Intersection for the Arts and ecoartspace present EcoArchive: Meditations on Time and Nature, a group exhibition of artworks that articulate contemplative environmental perspectives and time-based narratives in photography, sculpture, and video. In an age where perceptions of time and space are influenced by the immediacy of text messaging and instant streaming content on the internet, these artists respond to the use and consumption of natural resources by “naming the parts” of nature that define our world. The work in this exhibition challenges us to step outside of our daily experience, to consider on a deeper level the forces that shape the natural world, and how time collapses as we move into the future. Some of the works are actual archives documenting the environment and landscape; other works are poetic manifestations of nature, providing another avenue with which to consider our awareness of ecological processes. The exhibition is co- curated with Patricia Watts, founder and West Coast Curator of ecoartspace, a non-profit organization committed to developing creative and innovative strategies to address global environmental issues.
