Description

This artwork is made of chameleon painted corrugated steel and a polystyrene fireplace. "Deep time" is a geological term that refers to time on a planetary scale, specifically Earth. Deep time reaches back 4.6 billion years and is broken up into eons that describe the development of the atmosphere and life on the planet. The letters are cut out of corrugated steel. The undulating surface enhances the color-shifting quality of the paint. The form and color of the letters are meant to be an acknowledgement that time is never static, but always moving. The fireplace mantel is made of polystyrene. I choose this material because of its reputation of lasting forever, despite new studies indicating that it will break down of centuries. I contrasted these materials and ideas to consider humanity's impact on the Earth. Even though our planet is 4.6 billion years old, humanity is beginning to make a geological impact on it. Our impact is being recorded as a new epoch called the Anthropocene.
