Sub Terra, 2019Concrete, earth, metal scaffolding, aluminum, water12 × 10 × 30 feet

Sub Terra, a multiple platform installation performs the long percolation of geologic time through a series of water catchments, filters, and both accreted and eroded matter. Cast concrete elements resembling stalagmites, lunar surfaces and fossils act as imprints of aggregated and instantaneous time. Conceived as a slow fountain, the piece cycles not only water but particulate minerals into the earth. Set on a stepped scaffolding suggestive of stone quarry cut patterns, Sub Terra poetically diagrams planetary time.
