Presented at Melbourne CBD's West Space, Every Second Feels Like a Century sees a range of local artists from a host of creative backgrounds explore concepts of utopia and dystopia, survival and apocalyptic worlds. The exhibition suggests that objects have the power to reflect our histories, journeys and stories, and are clear "remnants of ideas, tools and thoughts scattered throughout cultures and time".

The eight exhibiting artists investigate this notion, with the presented works considering what's important to cultures and society, as civilisations and ways of life become lost to time. Curated by Hannah Presley and Debbie Pryor, the exhibition showcases works by John Brooks, Nicholas Hovington, Alterfact, Vito Bila, Sarah Mary Chadwick, Angela Thirlwell, Adam Ridgeway and Jasmine Targett, who utilise mediums such as video art, 3D-printed sculpture, glass and metal works and more.
