On the Other Hand, Kronoscope

On the Other Hand, 2020 is a collage series that began in response to the COVID 19 pandemic. Working with gifted and thrifted national geographic magazines, Cutler embraced the virus by channeling its RNA code to cast spells through hieroglyphic forms. By bringing disparate elements together into new configurations, an emergent lexicon is cast of human gestures and cultural artifacts. These sparse, abstract images operate as a kind of writing, open to interpretation while resonating our shared bodily experiences of uncertainty.

Since 1966, the International Society for the Study of Time (ISST) has been providing a framework for an interdisciplinary dialogue about the nature of time. KronoScope offers a forum for the cross-fertilization of scholarly and scientific study about the nature of time as seen from a range of perspectives and disciplines.
