Clay Time Code
by Barbara De Ponti
The Clay Time Code project, dedicated to the study of the geological archive, was created to stimulate a reflection on what we can say about time and how much tiny, ancient and extinct organisms can say about ourselves. Through a time journey, based on geological and micropalaeontological studies which allowed her to widen the traditional time scale measurement, De Ponti has identified a number of fossilised microorganisms and has made them the protagonists of a series of ceramic sculptures which depict them in an enlarged scale, using the same material from which they were originally formed.
Giving evidence and value to the micro, a number of coloured sticker drawings designed for the walls of Volvo Studio Milano, accompany the sculpture, creating a site-specific installation for an everyday experience.
