About Six Readings - On Time:
What are the roots that clutch, what branches grow Out of this stony rubbish?
— T S Eliot in The Waste Land
Events, situations, and occasions are scattered within the Milky Way of TIME; but TIME also exists within the details of dust, ornament, walking feet, resistance, closed doors, a blooming flower or rotting fruit, ruins, stories, waste, and even arrogance. As we jump to new toys such as postpandemic and ‘new normal’ what we forget is how TIME exists across pre- and post- as well as new and old... TIME bridges across epochs and events as well as creates multiple ecologies of existence. In these times we discuss space, materiality, and aesthetics to build a better understanding of TIME.
