Meditations on the cosmos have been a persistent concern for human kind since our emergence. Ritual events have been devised to heirarchically mediate between the universe, civilisation and the individual as a means to consider the position of our existence in relation to infinite time and space. This triad of universe / civilisation / individual is the tension for Waller’s newly reconstructed video work, Time Together. Within a new period of research, incorporating work produced at CAC Vilnius for the Baltic Triennial, the artist merges the ancient past of Mesopotamia together with present day scientific observations of solar storms.
