Time Captures

Nov 26, 2005



Emily Carr Institute of Art + Design, Vancouver


2:00 p.m.


In conjunction with the exhibition Greenwich Degree Zero, Rod Dickinson, Antonia Hirsch, and Tom McCarthy presented an artist talk at Emily Carr Institute of Art + Design (now Emily Carr University of Art + Design).

Greenwich Degree Zero was an exhibition presented by Western Front as part of Set, a curatorial series that explored the concepts of rehearsal and re-enactment and how they related to social roles, institutions, and histories. Set was curated by Lorna Brown and Jonathan Middleton and was a collaboration between Western Front and Artspeak. 

Time Captures was a talk that focused on time and its relationship to re-enactment, memory, and history. Antonia Hirsch and Rod Dickinson discussed their project Recovery, which addressed the development of standard time, and Lines Spoken For, which looked at the history of the international date line. 

Tom McCarthy read from his novel, Remainder, with the themes of re-enactment, history, and trauma.

Video documentation is available upon request.
