Art League Houston (ALH) is excited to present Loschmidt’s Column (The Reversibility Paradox), a durational sculpture by Houston-based artist Trey Duvall.

The project explores the passage and blending of material states subjected to the manipulations and processes of entropic time. Comprised of a porcelain and steel sculptural intervention, the project focuses on irreversible material change and exchange based on specific conditions of a particular space in forward moving time.

Loschmidt’s Paradox puts time reversal symmetry at odds with any attempt to infer from the second law of thermodynamics, which describes the behavior of macroscopic systems. Both of these are well-accepted principles in physics, with sound observational and theoretical support.

ABOUT THE ARTIST

Trey Duvall is an artist and educator. Duvall works in various forms including large-scale installations, video, performance, and traditional sculptural mediums concerning duration, stamina, humor, exhaustion, and entropy.

Duvall received his BA in Art Education from Fort Lewis College in Durango, Colorado, and is currently a Teaching Fellow and Masters of Fine Arts candidate at the University of Houston.

Duvall has exhibited both locally and nationally at venues including Lawndale Art Center (2016), School of Visual Arts, NY (2016), Plot Manifest, Marfa, TX (2016), and The Silos at Sawyer Yards (2016).

District provided services such as safety patrols by off-duty HPD officers, graffiti abatement, trash pick-up, maintenance of esplanades, among other services outlined in the Districts’ Assessment Plan, that are supplemental to services provided by the City of Houston, had been reduced in Mid-November and ceased completely as of December 11. The District had to cease the services due to unpaid assessments from some of the commercial property owners within the District. Delinquent assessments for 2016 and prior years are being collected for services that were delivered in 2017. The current lawsuit status does not affect the collection of delinquent assessments due for 2016 and prior years for services rendered for calendar year 2017. Please direct questions regarding the cessation of services to Executive Director, Ben Brewer at BBrewer@MontroseDistrict.org. We are committed to helping our neighborhood remain the safe, vibrant and attractive place to live and do business and would like to hear from you on how we can continue to work together in this effort.
