On an Acre Shy of Eternity
In On An Acre Shy of Eternity, Micro Landscapes at the Edge, Robert Dash takes nature exploration to new depths. He views the mystery of land and sea as one might read a book, promoting a visual, poetic, and ecological literacy that he calls “locavore art and ecology”– the art, science and discovery that beckons in one’s own front yard. Over a three-year period he traveled from bluff to tree, feather to seed on a near-acre of forest, meadow and cliff shouldering the Salish Sea at and near his home. Using metaphors, a camera, and a scanning electron microscope, Dash features beauty at scales ranging from craters on the moon to grains of pollen a few thousandths of an inch wide.
