Danielle Mericle: The Principle of Limiting Factors

Danielle Mericle’s work reflects on the complex relationship between history, knowledge, and power. In her upcoming installation, the Principle of Limiting Factors, Mericle interweaves video and photographs of disparate subjects: a dilapidated collection of Greco-Roman casts undergoing restoration, trees and tree rings, and academic bankers boxes slated for destruction. Cumulatively the work meditates upon the tenuous state of knowledge and the cyclical nature of history, and questions our understanding of what constitutes an authentic experience.
