Stratum





As geological weathering and geomorphic drivers shape our natural landscape, our species, similarily, constantly redefines our relationship with the organic world. Drawing from references such as the Scarborough Bluffs, Stratum creates an immersive experience using sculpture and light to examine how humans live within natural forces of gravity, erosion and stratification. The installation is composed of a series of panels, each emulating bedrock erosion and charting the effects of glacial movement and precipitation of over 14,000 years.














These panels incorporate an isomalt (a sugar substitute) and tonic water solution, which glows as an effect of the exposure to black light.
