The Oldest Living Things in the World

SussmanThe Samek Art Museum at Bucknell will be exhibiting the work of Rachel Sussman, an artist who has been traveling the world, photographing very old organisms (minimum age 2,000 years!) through March 22nd. The photographs themselves are understated; it's their subject matter and what it can do for our thinking about deep time and environmental value that is significant.

Sussman will give a gallery talk on Wednesday, January 21st at 6PM, moderated by Professor Duane Griffin (Geography), in the Gallery Theater (3rd floor of the Langone Center, adjacent to the Museum).

Check out her project webpage and her TED talk from a few years ago. Hope to see you there.
