> DESCRIPTION

The Sand Reckoner is the name of Archimedes' hypothetical project to calculate the size of the universe, measured in the number of grains of sand that it would take to fill the space. The disparity between what is possible and impossible evokes a sense of absurdity in the scope of the project and the amount of time required to accomplish the task. The four artists in this show address slow time as an inspiration for their process and point to temporary connections, fleeting moments, imperceptible changes, and other perceptible but subtle ways that time offers shape to our lives. Through a diverse set of mediums, such as painting, installation, video, kinetics and sound, the show explores the relation between time and space.
