Title:
Unboxing Deep Time - work in progress

Author:

Description:
See film: https://www.lornacarmenmcneill.com/unboxing-deep-time-2017 It is proposed that this installation is adapted for the purpose of this project - the sounds will be modified to be more in tune with the sounds of the pure ocean, the film will be changed to give more of a sense of a journey from the beginning of time to now, some words will be added about the effect of plastic disposed of in our beautiful sea - with the question of will it remain pure or become plastic? This installation is an invitation to reconnect to deep time to make a difference now. Deep Time is the continuous flow which unites us from ancient time to future potentials. It is a state of ongoing inspiration in the face of continuous change and unsettling times – a space in which we are not separate or isolated from eachother or the earth, but deeply connected. Underlying all things, from the flaring forth of life, there is an evolving flow that connects us to ourselves, eachother, our past, our future and the planet – if only we can be still enough to realise it. In the installation different forms of plastic are used as sculptures and to project through to create a sense of beauty and inspiration, out of something ugly. The oceans were created as part of an evolutionary journey of our universe. In this context it will be proposed that we need to address the issue of plastic waste now to preserve the beauty of our universal sea. It is now our choice whether or not we preserve our sea depending on our behaviours. The installation is a springboard to explore these issues. There is one sea uniting all countries and it is up to us to care for us. The accompanying proposed actions would include an exploration of how we can preserve the seas and avoid a situation where we destroy what we have been gifted.
