Conversations About Landscape: Imagining the Deep Time of the City

IMG_1980

Tuesday, October 13, 2015 • 7:00–8:00 p.m.

Exploratorium, Pier 15, Fisher Bay Observatory
Free, RSVP required. Email reserve@exploratorium.edu, or call 415.528.4444 and choose option 5.


How do we tell geologic time? How can we read the natural and cultural landscape for evidence of Earth’s history? Join Jason Groves, current Bay Observatory Urban Fellow, and Ilana Halperin, Exploratorium Artist-in-Residence, in a discussion about intimate geology and how understanding deep time can inform a comprehension of our environmental impact on the future.

About the presenters:

Jason Groves is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Germanics at the University of Washington, and is the Bay Observatory’s 2015 Urban Fellow.

Ilana Halperin is an artist based in Glasgow, Scotland. Her work explores the relationship between geological phenomena and daily life. For example, she has compared geologic processes of rock formation with the ways that our bodies generate hard masses like gallstones or kidney stones.
