About the Event

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 is a project that investigates concerns around ecology, the environment and how we inhabit our planet. This is a project developed out of a year-long research process where we explore geological time, ancient landscape, and human presence through conscious listening. The constellation of art works that we created are contemplative, immersive, and experiential. Through the work we hope to raise questions around the relationship between narrative ontology and an anthropocentric approach to our concern with the ecological crisis that we find ourselves in. We wonder if foregrounding experience before it becomes a story, could place us in a different relationship to our world.  

This project has been supported by THE WITNESS, Switzerland and SWISSNEX, India

Open Invitation

Experimental Film

The film visually explores the relationship of the human form to the landscape and pays attention to time, both human and geological. It is a meditation on time and presence. 


Feb 24th, Saturday 2pm

Time and Presence

Workshop

The workshop invites participants to experience the methods of investigation used for this artistic research process. By engaging with conscious listening and slowing down, what do we notice about the relationship between experience, time and self. 


Feb 24th, Saturday 7.30pm

Singing Body

Live Performance

This is an improvisational performance score that brings movement and sound together through the common modality of breath. It explores a meditative, mindful, contemplative journey through movement and stillness, sound and silence that unfolds from a place of conscious listening. 


Across Deep Time

Sound album

Exploring immersive soundscapes that play with space and presence, this album seeks to capture the sonic texture of the landscape through eco-acoustic experiments.
