Invisible Worlds Residency - Disintegrated Rock

Start: July 25, 2018, 10 a.m.
End: Oct. 28, 2018, 5 p.m.

Description

The first of our joint FoAM-Eden Project Invisible Worlds residencies is 'Disintegrated Rock' with Rosanna Martin of Brickworks. The residency will take place in the new Invisible Worlds exhibition laboratory at the Eden Project, and visitors are free to drop in at any time.

Our interaction with the planet has given rise to a place where human and geological forces are no longer always distinguishable.

Disintegrated Rock will explore this concept by engaging in a process of microscopic examination, research and material manipulation of sands, silts and clays that were spilt out as by-products from Cornwall’s china clay industry and related erosion.

A series of sculptural rocks will be created to form a handling collection for visitors to Eden to discover, displayed alongside research and experiments.

This residency runs 25-31 June 2018 and 15-28 October 2018.

The Invisible Worlds residencies are funded by the Wellcome Trust.
