Terra Tumultum

Terra Tumultum

The earth can speak the chaos of the world and register its complaints. Terra Tumultum (Earth Noise) generates an earth language that merges with human languages. Prints from metal plates that have been buried and etched by the earth are resurrected, printed, and displayed as memorial markers. The prints bear witness to threatened human values such as equality and truth, written in four languages – Creek, Spanish, Haitian Creole, and English – tracing the cultural history of the greater Orlando region. Terra Tumultum is a hopeful project for 2017, calling on and questioning the resilience of basic human values in corrosive times.
