Emplacement ︎ the process or state of setting something in place or being set in place.
Emplacement (Geology) ︎the intrusion of igneous rocks into a particular position
The Emplacement Society associates with the molten igneous rock that intrudes into bedrock, cools, and waits to be uncovered. In a tribute to slow time, it is an open ended project that exists to matter thoughts and excitement, physicalize questions and curiosity, and connect with other bodies. In its current form, it encompasses walking trips close to home and in the backcountry, workshops, exhibitions, conversations, shared meals, research, imagined procedures, writings, radical teaching and learning, and collaborative wayfinding. As much as we can, we prioritize creating a shared experience for each other without aestheticization. Together, we are feeling out both the processes and states of being set in place.
