Field_Notes – Deep Time
A project by Astrida Neimanis
Field_Notes – Deep Time is a weeklong art&science field laboratory organized by the Finnish Society of Bioart at the Kilpisjärvi Biological Station in Lapland/Finland. Five working groups, hosted by Oron Catts, Antero Kare, Leena Valkeapaa, Tere Vaden, Elisabeth Ellsworth and Jamie Kruse, together with a team of five, will develop, test and evaluate specific interdisciplinary approaches in relation to the Deep Time theme. Field_Notes – Deep Time is in search of artistic and scientific responses to the dichotomy between human time-perception and comprehension, and the time of biological, environmental, and geological processes in which we are embedded. The local sub-Arctic nature, ecology, and geology, as well as the scientific environment and infrastructure of the Kilpisjärvi Biological Station will act as a catalyst for the work carried out. Field research: 15 – 22 September 2013 field laboratory at the Kilpisjärvi Biological Station; 23-24 September 2013 conference in Helsinki.
