Geo-Logic | Susan Schuppli

A mode of anti-humanist reasoning in which the time scales and spatial expressions of history are radically reorganised. In geology fault-lines cut into the rock bedding of earlier material formations creating spatio-temporal mismatches or inclusions as older rock is propelled over much younger geological strata, sedimented, and fired into new aggregate formations. Dolomite provides an example of this complex temporal reconfiguration of spatialised matter. The logic of its geo-amalgams consists of differentiated materials ripped from vastly disparate time periods.
