The meeting of clouds and sediment suggests an intersection of disparate temporalities and materialities – time in fleeting or geological registers, matter as diffuse and fugitive or compressed and layered. Clouds are mutable, transient and can be seen from afar but merge into surroundings up close, while sediment carries the weight of millennia in skin-like layers, each of which is an accumulation of histories. The works presented in this Hyphen Lab address these convergences through dealing with matters of temporality, embodiment, recording, ecological practice, social ecologies and more-than human life. Cloud Sediments is convened as part of Ecological Futurisms, an emerging collective of CREAM faculty and doctoral researchers who explore modes of togetherness and exposition in the face of growing and ongoing global and local challenges.
