Drawn from the University of Saskatchewan Art Collection, material + time presents divergent associations with structural modes, moving away from static momentsthe blueprint, the cross-section, the flow charttowards an understanding of structure as an ongoing process of dissolution. Considered against the backdrop of social, historical, cultural and affective entanglements, forms perceived as stable in stasis become malleable in duration. Architecture crumbles, technology become obsolete and systems deteriorate or fail.
