Opening Reception: Thursday June 16, 7:30PM
In Part Time Deep Time, Meghan Price looks to geological phenomena and the scientific practices of geology to investigate concepts of ‘deep time’ and human time. Moving between sculpture, weaving, printmaking, lacemaking, and video, Price works in laborious processes that create moments of connection between the human and the geological. Part Time Deep Time speaks to a desire to take part in activity that would slow one down to a place where movement becomes nearly imperceptible. Informed by the visual language of scientific illustration and everyday practices, Price’s work investigates how pattern can escape the confines of illustration and migrate back into the world, such as when dashes used to signify metamorphic rock begin to read as a tally, a language, or a measure of time.
