Gestrata overlays my body’s the physical changes pregnancy with the slow changes Earth's geological churning. This type of imagining, whether applied to the inner and outer of landscapes or our own bodies, is crucial in imagining the flux of the warming planet. Through written and poetic captions I propose that infants aren’t purely innocent blank slates, but that they perhaps hold memory of what it is like to be in constant motion. It is about the unknown of the other side and the desire to explore through touch. In anticipation of impending change I try to grasp the sounds, and sensations of our current moment’s unraveling stability.
Dedicated to my son Felix. I hope we can all work to make this planet more habitable by understanding our relationship to it and each other.
