Larissa Lösch and Rob Kettels present Timestamp, a series of multi-disciplinary artworks representing their engagement with geology and deep-time contexts. Lösch investigates the dramatic sea cliffs and surrounds of West Cape Howe, Western Australia’s most southerly point. Kettels tries to fathom his encounter with the earth’s oldest known rocks, found in Jack Hills, Western Australia.
