TIME AND MY WORK




TIME

WHEN I TALK ABOUT TIME IN MY ART, I AM NOT REFERRING TO PHYSICS AND THE CONCEPTS THE SCIENTISTS THINK ABOUT LIKE:
TIME AND  ENTROPY
TIME AND RANDOM FLUCTUATIONS
TIME AND MEASUREABLENESS
TIME AND RELATIVITY
TIME AND BLACK HOLES
TIME AND MOTION
TIME AND FORCE
TIME AND A BLOCK UNIVERSE
TIME AND THE BIG BANG

NO, THIS IS NOT MY LANGUAGE. CONVERSELY, AS AN ARTIST, I BELEIVE THAT ALL IS AVAILABLE TO ME AND SINCE THE 60'S I INVITED TIME AND IT'S PURITY, TIME AND IT'S INVISIBILITY, TIME AND ITS MALLEABILITY, TIME AND IT'S MYSTERIOUSNESS TO PLAY WITH ME.

I'M NOT GOING TO CHANGE COURSE AND EMOTIONALLY BLAME MY  FASCINATION WITH TIME ON THE FACT THAT MY DAD DIDNT HAVE ANY BECAUSE AS A CHILD OF THE DEPRESSION AND WW2 CLIMATE OF DREAD, HE WORKED 24/7 SIX AND A HALF DAYS A WEEK TO FEED, CLOTHE AND HOUSE ALL 6 OF US. TIME TOOK DAD FROM ME. HMMM. SO I TOOK TIME AWAY FROM TIME AND MADE ART ABOUT IT???STRANGE THINKING BUT MAYBE THERE IS SOME TRUTH IN THIS.
