I'll be running a writing workshop with science fiction writer Charles Oberndorf as part of Sara Black and Amber Ginsburg's exhibition 7000 Marks on view now at SPACES in Cleveland (2900 Detroit Avenue, Cleveland, OH 44113. The event is free and open to the public. Here is the description of the event from the SPACES website.
"A geologist and a fiction writer will lead creative workshop, Adapting into the Future, Looking to Former Landscapes to Imagine Future Worlds, as part of 7000 Marks.
CREATIVE WRITING - Looking to geologic pasts to imagine future worlds
Human beings understand the world through human scales of reference, both physically and in time. The study and consideration of geology encourages us to imagine deep time as it reaches into the past and the art of science fiction enables us to consider deep futures. Join artist and geologic thinker Ryan Dewey, science fiction author Charles Oberndorf and 7000 Marks artists Sara Black and Amber Ginsburg in a discussion on these themes and activate the 7000 pencils through a creative writing workshop in which we will aim to imagine outside of the human timeframe into deep futures."
