DC: "Imagining Deep Time" at the National Academy of Sciences


  • National Academy of Sciences 500 5th St NW Washington, DC, 20001 United States

This exhibition represents an area where rational and intuitive thinking come together to explore the question of how we relate to the vastness of time. The answer suggested by the artwork suggests that we do so through a combination of visual metaphors (cycles, circles, arrows, trajectories) and visual evidence (rock formations, strata, fossils of fauna and flora) while being mediated through various technologies and media. 

Artists featured include Chul Hyun Ahn, Alfredo Arreguin, Diane Burko, Alison Carey, Terry Falke, Sharon Harper, Mark Klett and Byron Wolfe, Rosalie Lang, David Maisel, Semiconductor, Rachel Sussman, and Jonathan Wells. Download the exhibition catalog.
