Shallow Time: The Burren

Humans lack the capacity to comprehend geological time, a breadth unfathomable from our biological perspective. Our callous extraction of resources negates the patience of geomorphology. The Burren’s karst landscape instinctively rejects the notion of deep time. Its proximity to the visible surface belies its layered creation over millennia. It is a unique terrain where natural processes can be appreciated rather than exploited. A landscape that can be interpreted in the tension between depth and shallowness, mass and volume.
