This line of work deals with equilibrium and tension from regions with a rich biosphere but also populated and intervened by humans. Using human -time and space- scale and his relation to the world using phenomena that precede him as well as the objects and situations generated by him. For this purpose I use geological and industrial crafts to unveil our surrounding.
For Pannotia I have been studying the relation between landscapes before and after the anthropic in these regions and focused between the Precambrian and the Cambrian periods (540 million years ago) where the biggest explosion of life known on earth happened. During that time most of the earth was oceanic soil and new land emerged as a type of broome, sweeping millions of species now present in the land as sedimentary and metamorphic rocks. The coast acted as a sort of spatula compressing time and its sediments, as many geological signs show today. It was in that moment that appeared most of taxonomic and vertebrate groups we know today.
The next biggest transformation is happening since the first half of twentieth century with the intervention of Humans, transformation of landscape, emissions and residue. In my practice I opérate between these parameters of time scale, perspective and recent history to unveil the geological and antropic layers of each location. In conversation with national geological centers and the local communities I try to open a conversation, reading geotechnical drillings to explain the territory and its material legacy. It is vital that through art we filter and nourish our relation with the soil we live in. This turns into a conversation, an exchange of information from the technical to the popular knowledge, involving geologists, geographists, philosophers and artists in conjunction with the inhabitants of the area to construct new narratives of stratification and consciousness about our footprint on earth.
