Frequencies of Deep Time, Single Channel Video, 2022, 6min 22sec, 3840 x 2160 UHD 4k

Frequencies of Deep Time explores changes of geological time in Western New York, change that form strata in the rock formations of gorges like Watkins Glen State Park. I am interested in the stories the formations can tell of the co-evolution of life and minerals, of humans and non-humans, and their entanglement with one another and the land. I developed custom software that uses sound waves to augment three-dimensional forms animating the geological landscapes. Oscillations work as an audio-visual metaphor for change across deep time and provide a way to perform across an incomprehensible length of time.
