tectonic crust cake / calcite future aquatic
Rebecca Steedman & Kirsten Dryburgh

"A few shots in a few minutes to change the course of a three-hour film… At 7:38 there is a glorious, fifty second, continuous shot mixing the many Hari’s at the space station along with Kris’s mother. The balletic back and forth of zooms and tracks seems a perfect formula for capturing delirium..." - Greg Gerke on Solaris

This is a manufactured fiction. Everyday ceramic objects with a sci-fi twist. Refractory surfaces and luminous glazes, the lushness of an aquatic environment. Light and sound siphoned into space, caressing and sculpting through time. The circle repeats.

This is an imaginative leap rooted in science fiction. A kaleidoscopic metronomic inspired by Italo Calvino’s Cosmicomics and the disquieting treatment of time in Andrei Tarkovsky’s Solaris. Astroscience and geoscience meeting at the kitchen table.
