Zoe Scoglio: Shifting Ground (2012)

Lava to rock, fossil to fuel – Shifting Ground is a performance and installation that draws parallels between geological transformations and those found within the human race. Media artist and performer Zoe Scoglio unites object manipulation, physicalised sounds and interactive projection mapping and ceremonial participation in a journey from the cosmic to the concrete. The boundaries between human and rock melt away, as the presence of the earth’s minerals is revealed in the structures we create, the tools we use, and the bodies in which we live. Shifting Ground looks at our ever-changing relationship to geological substances, exploring the idea that all forms are temporal and metamorphic. In a society defined by its seemingly solid and indestructible cities, Shifting Ground aims to reminds us of the impermanent and fleeting nature of our time on this earth, and our symbiotic relationship with the elements that form it.
