Curated by Matthew Lyons

In this new series of sculptures Joe Winter juxtaposes conventions of information display against ways of reimagining and representing extended notions of geologic and astronomic time. Winter combines ordinary items typical to the workplace or educational settings (such as dry erase boards, chalk, or slate) with kinetic mechanisms to instigate gently destructive actions that echo processes such as erosion, sedimentation, or metamorphosis. The works reflect Winter’s ongoing interest in locating a scientific gaze within the framework of labor and data management, the macrocosm in the tedium, and in opening up possibilities of sublime notions such as “deep time,” within the everyday.

Exhibition Hours: Tues-Fri, 12-6pm; Sat 11-6pm FREE
