Beginnings

The Slow Creep (2002)

There have been countless breathtaking, innovative feats throughout evolution that deserve celebrating: some have been pivotal to the subsequent route taken towards life as we know it, others less so, but all have had an impact.

Beginnings was Gilbart's first residency exhibition at the University of Cambridge in which selective evolutionary novelties evident or suggested in the fossil record were explored. Gilbart was particularly interested in the ancient PreCambrian period. Relatively little is known of this great underbelly of prehistory that spans seven-eighths of the Earth’s existence in which most of the key components for life was laid down.
