Call for Art

Geo-Metric literally means Earth measurement. While traditionally, basic geometry relies on axioms used to measure fixed shapes and construct solid objects that will stand the test of time,“Geo-Metric” here refers to the ability to measure change. Our planet is constantly in motion and changes with exposure to light, temperature, weather, human intervention and climate change. The season visibly changes from summer to fall over the run of the Art Ramble, but what are the changes and patterns (geometric or otherwise) that we do not see? How can we make visible the patterns of nature and their disruption – raising awareness of the threats to our environment as well as nature’s keen ability to adapt and survive? This year’s Art Ramble focuses on work that measures the change that results from exposure to the environment or to human intervention. Work may be ephemeral and disappear, grow in size or strength, or change form. We welcome works that are interactive or participatory allowing visitors to measure naturally occuring change or contribute to change in order to illustrate (without actually inflicting) human impact on the environment. All media, including sound installation (via QR code) and performance will be considered.
