Permanent Past (2019) looks at Rome through the prism of block universe theory. This suggests that the past, present and future exist at the same time. This possibility was suggested by Einstein and current scientific thinking seems to think it probable.
Permanent Past examines the accretions of 28 centuries of Roman habitation. A layering of history that is compressed in our ‘present’. It speaks of a city – on a town – on a settlement – on vacant land.
Permanent Past sifts through the sediment of Rome to reveal her spectacular periods of great knowledge and successes and of her science and superstition.
How Can You Be Surprised By Life
An investigation of the past informs us that life is random and uninterested in human needs and desires.
So why do we humans fabricate life to give an appearance of order and certainty?
Can people embrace the sheer chance of entering and living life?
Could that in turn create an easier acceptance of our own death, the only real certainty of the living?
How Can You Be Surprised By Life is the documentation of a medical procedure carried out on myself to ameliorate a potential life threatening occasion.
