-The notion of deep time confirms that it is in the space where the value of time is stored. The beautiful quote: “In the presence of eternity, the mountains are as transient as the clouds” attributed to Ralph Ingersoll, well known public speaker of the 1930’s. The essence of this quote is found in the Qur’an, (Sura 27, Aya 88). Using the antipode as a geographical metaphor the camera "reads" slowly through the stratigraphy of an eroded mountain, making a parallel between a "geological construction" and a "human construction". What you see upside down is a rammed earth wall found in a state of ruin near the outskirts of Bogotá. The second text as we go across the ground: "this world with all its details has been elaborated and annihilated, and will be elaborated and annihilated: infinitely" comes from Borges quoting Hume.-
