Dimension and time variable
a monumental echo is an installation of monuments and props within an animated primordial sea of stone. As a series of gnomonic constructions, the works attempt to communicate with the otherworld, offering access points for mental transportation. We are earthbound, but through the material of this place, the rhythms, the tides, the evidence of time eroded and energies that shuffle the geologic, we don’t have to be. Earth provides the elements that can transport us into the galactic distance. Temporality and similitude offer an opening for sensual exchange, moving together, mirrors and echoes, a reciprocity between living and non-living beings. In time, we can travel out into the molten cosmic ocean. The seismic universe is also a uniting force, as a collective we are effected by its elemental architecture, its flows and shifts, its bursts and fizzles. A celestial hierarchy in which we are intimately connected. a monumental echo considers the human desire to locate existence within a higher framework, bringing human sentiment and cosmic forces into a comprehensible relationship.
