Tracie Hayes: Place Picture, Earth Form

@ Wedge Projects

1448 W Howard St, Chicago, IL 60626

Opening Saturday, July 20th, from 5PM - 8PM

On view through Saturday, August 10th

1,000 counted steps, 10 steps at a time, 10 days moving, 20-degree move, 20-degree movement

with error

the non-biased biased human, counting
the hand-, eye-, pencil-, pen-, yarn-, laser-, scissor-, pixel-, air-, water-traced tracing
traced again

the paper
echoed paper

the on-humming
going on, on
to go,

an immortal second
a split second infinite
a ghost, free-flung dangling

the ancient
captured aura

lost but found
perpetual ephemerality

“The words topography and geomorphic refer to the shape of the land: topography means ‘place picture,’ and geomorphic means ‘earth form.’ These geomorphic provinces represent natural units within which the boundaries of landforms are remarkably consistent with those of biological communities. That is, the shape of the earth influences climate, and climate influences the distribution of plants and animals.” *

*from Allan A. Schoenherr’s A Natural History of California
