Summary expansion
As the artist explains, "Water and soil--two of the oldest beings on our planet.The earth was shaped and is being shaped even today entirely by these slow-moving forces....The confluence of energies created by these two ancient beings is what enabled our birth and continues to ensure not only our survival, but the survival of all life on our home. The earth continues to change and evolve. As we enter the anthropocene we affect change that would have taken the earth billions of years, in a fraction of the time. The processes of erosion and sedimentation are no longer a testament to time but a sign of human presence and intervention."

  • Date from colophon
  • Colophon: "Deep time has been [letterpress] printed on kozo dyed with cloves and indigo. The imagery engraved in wood has been adapted from contour maps of the Himalayan range, and the cut shapes are the boundaries of the highest physical features of our planet, namely the Tibetan plateau (China, Tibet, India); the Kanza'gyal mountain range (east Asia); and the Andean mountain range (western South America). The creation of Deep time was made possible by a grant from the College Book Arts Association. Written, designed, and printed by Radha Pandey in 2017."
  • The book consists of 19 unbound stacked leaves. The shapes cut into each leaf are staggered ever so slightly, so that when the leaves are stacked, one can see through the cavernous space created by these forms resembling a physical elevation or contour map. Depending on which way the book is read, these cut shapes appear to sediment on one side and erode on the other, with readers physically participating in these natural processes as they progress through the book. The loose pages sit in a deep box to accomodate this movement"--Artist's website https://www.radhapandey.com
  • Unbound leaves laid in tan cloth clamshell case lined with blue cloth; title printed in black on blue and tan paper strip affixed vertically to lid of case
