Infinite Cycles is a proposal for a two-channel video installation intended for Big Rock, a glacial erratic located near Okotoks, Alberta. Glacial erratics are boulders or other types of rocks which have been transported by a continental glacier over a considerable distance from the location which created them. Approximately nine meters tall and over fifteen thousand tonnes, Big Rock is the world’s largest known erratic and it was transported to its current location between 12 to 18 thousand years ago. By continually drawing and un-drawing the infinity symbol, the videos attempt to mediate the disconnect between how humans perceive time compared to the cycles of creation and destruction that can be seen in nature.
