A modified version of Hans Jenny’s soil science “Clorpt” equation (a soil property is a function of Climate + Organisms + Relief (topography) + Parent Material + Time) is used to examine the forces that interplay to create a person’s history. In this model: Climate examines the sociopolitical climate surrounding an individual; Organisms delves into the influence of non-family persons and other biological organisms that influence a person’s life; Relief (topography) explores personal connection to places, or “topophilia”; Parent Material examines the values and histories of an individual’s family; and Time investigates personal use of time and the chronology of a person’s life.
LifeCores are an excellent way to explore the variable of “Time” in this context. NOTE: Some items are still under construction. More images and creative projects will be added as this project progresses.
