Shodo Terra

Shodo Terra

Shodo Terra (Ink Drawing Earth) combines three registers of "information" evoking three vastly different "time lines."

--Calligraphy approach to recording a river's path. The fluid ink echoing (in microcosm) the paths of water over the planet: Earth's Time.

--Physics Forrmulas from a basic Physics texbook referencing the "nature and properties of matter and energy" march along the paper forming a guiding line: Thee formulas = Cosmos Time.

--Penciled locations of the cities that sit along the river. The youngest and most frail marking of the earth, referencing our short time on this planet: Human Time.
