‘In the current industrialised way of existing, many Homo sapiens live a life no longer as intimately synced to the circadian clock of Earth. The technologies we have inherited from our Homo habilis ancestors have slowly but steadily developed. Today ‘artificial’ production of light, heat, food, etc. has brought, among other things, an accelerated existence. The urban and indoor routine of city humans may seem detached; as a parallel reality happening at another speed or dimension. But we are fully attached, furthermore enclosed in, bigger clocks and stronger things that we will probably never master. Like planetary rotation. Like volcanoes.’
‘Under the Ciltlatepetl’ was a series of exhibitions co-curated by the Science Festival, Summerhall and ASCUS Art & Science. ‘Under the Ciltlatepetl’ brings together a selection of works by international artists intrigued by light in all its forms. Celebrating the UN International Year of Light and the Science Festival’s Brainwaves strand, the exhibitions explore the beauty, form and function of light and its role as a metaphor for knowledge and enlightenment.

A Thing Called Time is a serial publication project in which different understandings of the concept of time are explored. Using a specific area of knowledge as a starting point. For issue #1: Biological Time, the team invited Dr. Marina Escalera, a molecular biologist who’s main research involves searching for new viruses in the anal swamps of vampire bats. The next publication, Issue #3: Mathematical Time is currently being worked on in collaboration with Felipe Garcia Ramos, a mathematician who is focused on the study order and chaos.

THE GEOLOGIC DEPTH OF NOW walk (color pigments)
August 3 – 29, 2014
The Geologic Depth of Now is a scaled walk through the history of the Earth. In other words: a walkable timeline of 1150 metres that takes the walkers through the Earth’s history. Starting at the formation of the planet 4.6 billion years ago, stopping at decisive moments in animal history and ending in present times, when the human species becomes a predator over all other species. “Unlike the first five extinctions, the sixth extinction is neither abrupt nor spectacular. No smashing asteroids or giant volcano eruptions. Only the slow, cumulative effecs of greenhouse gases, rain forest depletion, and a brand of imperialism that extols the virtues of high mass consumption.” (Genese Marie Sodokoff, The Anthropology of Extinction) During the walk, Western concepts of measurements and categorizations are slowly deconstructed.
