Petroleum has long been recognized to be a dangerously volatile commodity whose illuminative and propulsive capacities are inseparable from its destructive potential. This catastrophic power has been reaffirmed by the succession of environmental disasters that have accompanied the global expansion of oil extraction--a series of ecological tragedies culminating in the 2010 Deepwater Horizon blowout--and the array of social antagonisms, global political conflicts, and chaotic economic cycles that have developed around the industry since its beginnings.
Time's excesses in music, literature and art
This international conference is intended to explore how time may be represented aesthetically in excessive, eccentric and unthinkable ways. Art appears to have found a means of getting around time's dilemmas by depicting it as irrational or portraying the impossibility of getting a firm grasp of it. In art, time has long been shaped as something out of proportion, excessive, or even violent, which is evidenced by works such as Saturn Devouring his Son.
