Art on Lincoln: Prehistory
September 17, 2019 | 7:00 PM - 8:00 PM
About Prehistory: At dusk nocturnal birds—the Great Horned Owl, the Eastern Screech Owl, the Barn Owl—appear and disappear on the brick surface. A prehistoric landscape of marshes and swamps is revealed. Looking closer, the viewer sees traces of urban pollution and industrial waste within the murky waters, complicating the idea of untouched prehistoric nature. The immersive installation invites viewers to experience familiar places anew, revealing the city as a complex ecosystem. Prehistory reframes our ideas about where nature is and illuminates that which often goes unnoticed.
