Metabolization Sequence / Disarticulation Sequence / Propagation Sequence - installation views

These three “sequences” were developed from working in archaeological contexts—in collections, laboratories, and excavation sites. The works pursues an archeology that eschews the centrality of humans and instead engages with the entanglements of an anthropos—from metabolic to ecological—ensnared in deep time’s surreal dimensions. The work is oriented around 3 archeology sites: a pre-Homo sapiens lower Paleolithic site more than 335,000 years old; a 40-50,000 year old middle Paleolithic site with Neanderthal and Homo sapiens layers; and a Neolithic site from approximately 5,500 years ago. Taken together the installation uses the ancient past to offer views on how the momentum of the present propels us towards the future.
