We offer you erode/return, a project of the earth, that is sufficient.
Lucy's (the australopithecus) bones have been shipped to 3 different places across the globe. In this fragmented state she awakens to find an unfamiliar upside down world. She tries to find her way home, calling on creeks and rivers to guide her. Will she find the place she is looking for?
Join us in a contemplation on the erosion of land, bodies, and boundaries, as we, like Lucy, try to navigate an uncertain future shaped by the climate crisis.
We are seeking YOUR responses to erode/return in the form of video, text, audio and image.
In your response, share:
Something that in your lifetime in has changed in climate or landscape where you live; and then
Imagine fifty years into the future. What boundaries or borders have changed or eroded where you live?
Please send your responses to firstname.lastname@example.org by July 1, and they will be posted here alongside erode/return.
erode/return was created on the traditional territories of the Piscataway, xʷməθkwəy̓əm (Musqueam), Skwxwú7mesh (Squamish), Səl̓ílwətaʔɬ/Selilwitulh (Tsleil-Waututh) and Kwikwetlem.
