USF Contemporary Art Museum and Patel College of Sustainability invite you to the Global Sustainability Speaker Series featuring artist-researcher Karolina Sobecka and Jamie Allen from the 
exhibition The Visible Turn: Contemporary Artists Confront Political Invisibility.

"It is that which at this instant, issuing out of a labyrinthine tangle of yeses and nos, makes my hand run along a certain path on the paper, mark it with these volutes that are signs: a double snap, up and down, between two levels of energy, guides this hand of mine to impress on the paper this dot,
 here, this one."  Primo Levi, "Carbon," from The Periodic Table (1975) 

If there is a universe in every word, each atom also creates its own narrative. In this performance 
lecture spanning a contemporary history of its composition, markets and capture, a literary cycle of Carbon is developed in moving image, text and diagram. The use and abuse of cycles as models of
 exchange and circulation are examined for their appropriateness and applicability, and new models are proposed for our relationship to this building block of life, petrocultures and capitalism. Karolina 
Sobecka and Jamie Allen present a cyclical discussion in six elements for element number six.
