“Time as Measured by Mountains” – Alanna Lorenzon


(a drawing & research project).

Time is slippery. The present moment is dense and multi-layered and the future splits off into a multitude of potentialities. Mountains, however, hold time. They condense it and titrate layers of proof that the past existed. They are giant clocks compressing the earth’s experience in their underbelly.

During the ‘While the Hour’ residency, I will explore the time-keeping of mountains. I will use poetic, scientific and artistic methods of enquiry to attempt a greater understanding of the way that mountains hold time and how these giant forms can help a human understand their world and their place in time.
