xx Hours Adrift

A series of durational prints that capture the  microscopic process of spore dispersal over time.

1.  38 Hours Adrift (1802042-3)
2.  49 hours Adrift (1802042-1)
3.  43 Hours Adrift (1801073-1)
All are Russula ‘brevipes’ spore print on 11”x15” Arches Card

Detail images from multiple spore prints in the series highlight the architectural textures of the gills,  the drifts painted by air currents, and the tracks left by insects during the printmaking.

The xx Hours Adrift (xHA) project utilizes the process of fungal dispersal to create unique printed media that reveal microscopic and otherwise invisible worlds that play out over time. The work is one of several cross-disciplinary projects underway to explore ‘creative engagement with duration’ as a critical concept in furthering the relational, dialogical, and experiential nature of ‘dialectical landscapes’ (see my article in the Time issue of LA+ Journal).
