Naturalists of the Long Now

This event is in the past
Wed - Sat, through Jul 2, 12 - 5 pm
Blue Sky Gallery Northwest Portland (Portland)
This is an in-person event

All of those pesky, ultra-important reports from leading scientists about the impending doom of the climate crisis have radically shifted common perceptions of time. We're now thinking more critically about human and geologic time scales, and in response, photographer Ian van Coller's Naturalists of the Long Now seeks to conceptualize "deep time" through visual investigations of glacial ice and "earthly archives." Collaborating with scientists, van Coller's art is a challenge. It asks that the viewer consider the vastness of past and future geologic time, imagining a potential future for humanity beyond our immediate desires. In this way, the work serves as an important exercise in selflessness and hope.
