Art League Houston presents Artist Talk: Trey Duvall
Art League Houston will host an artist talk with Trey Duvall discussing his project, "Loschmidt’s Column (The Reversibility Paradox)," currently on view in the ALH Sculpture patio.
"Loschmidt’s Column (The Reversibility Paradox)" is a durational sculpture that explores the passage and blending of material states subjected to the manipulations and processes of entropic time. Comprised of a porcelain and steel sculptural intervention, the project focuses on irreversible material change and exchange based on specific conditions of a particular space in forward moving time.
"Loschmidt's Paradox" puts time reversal symmetry at odds with any attempt to infer from the second law of thermodynamics, which describes the behavior of macroscopic systems. Both of these are well-accepted principles in physics, with sound observational and theoretical support.
Duvall is an artist and educator who works in various forms, including large-scale installation, video, performance, and traditional sculptural mediums concerning duration, stamina, humor, exhaustion, and entropy.
