Earth: Caught in stoneArt-Science Exhibition 2021
Explore the formation of rocks, as they are layered across geologic time, under restless pressures, ruptures and constant change. Engage with the macro and the micro, with chaos and order. Find out how has our planet made us. How have the connections between earth systems affected evolution throughout deep time, and changed the course of histories and cultures? What will our new horizons look like in the new geological era of the Anthropocene? And what about those giant kumimanu penguins who once visited the shores of Zealandia?!
