In On An Acre Shy of Eternity, Robert Dash takes nature exploration to new depths. Over a three-year period he traveled from bluff to tree, feather to seed on a near-acre of forest, meadow and cliff shouldering the Salish Sea. Using metaphors, a camera, and a scanning electron microscope, Dash features beauty at scales ranging from craters on the moon to grains of pollen hundreds of times smaller than a pinhead. He views the mystery of this land as one might read a book, promoting a visual, poetic and ecological literacy that he calls "locavore art and ecology"–the art, science and discovery that beckons in one's own front yard.
