County Voice: March 2023

Playing with time

On Saturday 4th March 2.30pm - 4pm, Sean Harris and cave palaeontologist Professor Danielle Schreve (Royal Holloway University London) discuss their extensive creative collaboration with Elinor Gwynn at Ruthin Craft Centre.

Moving between time-frames stretching from twenty-fifths of a second to geological epochs they consider how understanding mammalian response to past abrupt climate change can help to avoid future extinctions (including our own), how past environments create valuable context for the present – and how the research lineage of which Danielle Schreve is a contemporary part emerged from the mythology of the Old Testament. Were we happier in a universe defined in ritual storytelling? And where does the most enduring truth lie?

Followed by an opportunity to experience their collaborative work The Cave Hunters And The Truth Machine in an installation within the watermill at Loggerheads Country Park, CH7 5LH. This will also offer a unique opportunity to talk to Harris and Schreve about their work both collaborative and as individuals working in diverse but complimentary disciplines.

The Cave Hunters And The Truth Machine runs in the watermill at Loggerheads Country Park, 6.00pm – 8.00pm. The piece is 25 minutes long and will run on a loop. Stay for as little or as long as you like – and perhaps embark on a meditative walk at dusk through this beautiful and scientifically important limestone landscape using the animation app Udfil, specially created for Loggerheads, as your guide.
