It has been suggested that Time was the first measure. Witnessing, questioning and documenting the movement of day into night; the change of seasons; the cyclical movement of sun, moon, and stars…has connected us intimately to our environment. Even before we were human, this type of phenomenological measure was “written into our biology, hard-coded in our DNA as circadian rhythms….coordinat(ing) each of our bodies to the spin of the planet that is our home”(1).
We have devised breathtaking strategies and tools to measure distance, time, speed, capacity…from the span of the heavens, to the clock, to the internal structure of our planet. Measurements that have been refined, and standardized; subject to the occasional imaginative burst that rocks our world and changes everything. So how will future advances in technology affect our tangible connections with the natural world?
The artists in this exhibition reflect on time, light, colour, season, the movement of celestial bodies, and how we perceive the measure of these things. Seven remarkable artists, working at the intersection of science, art and technology, capture the experience of a technologically mediated world while evoking wonder, imagination and the embodied experience.
