Open Invitation - An Exploration of Deep time and conscious Listening Film and Talk
If Deep Time is a frame to understand scales of time that are beyond human experience and history, then rocks are the witness to Deep Time.
Open Invitation Collective is a group of artists who share similar concerns around ecology, the environment and how we inhabit our planet. After a year-long research process we are excited to share the research process and art works where we explore geological time, ancient landscape, and human presence through conscious listening. The art works that we have created are contemplative, immersive, and experiential. This project has been supported by SONIC MATTER, Switzerland and SWISSNEX, India
The film visually explores the relationship of the human form to the landscape and pays attention to time, both human and geological. The film evokes a sense of expanse and immersion.
Geological Talk If deep time is a frame to understand scales of time that are beyond human experience and history, then rocks are the witness to deep time. This talk will open up some ideas around our current understanding of deep time as captured by these rocks and a geological approach to reading the landscape around us.
