Time and Space: Entry V, by Samuel Bostick.
“Time and Space. This catalog is an expressive venture into time and space. This has been a theme heavy on my mind, especially making the transition from life in Atwater, CA to Brooklyn. Yes, a second is always a second, but nonetheless, a minute in Atwater is very different than a New York minute. It’s crazy! It seems the best way to put it in short is that TIME and SPACE are measures of presence. Even writing this now, I know it’s further and deeper than that. Hope you enjoy the ride…”
Time and Space, Entry Five
A Timely Rant
Feels like I never have the time…
NO TIME TO NEITHER SIT DOWN AND DO THIS NOR DO THAT,
I DON’T HAVE TIME TO PLEASE NO TIME TO EAT NO TIME TO SLEEP
THAT’S THE MATTER OF FACT!
TRADITION IS A GHOST
TIME STEADY CHANGING
ZONAL REARRANGING COAST TO COAST, PORT TO PORT
AS THE WORLD SPINS SO DOES MY HEAD
CONSEQUENTLY IVE LOST MY MIND SOMEWHERE IN THE TIMELINE
THE BIT OF SANITY LEFT JUST GOT SPENT, THAT WAS THE OUTSTANDING COST OF THIS MONTHS RENT
WHY DON’T THEY CALL IT TALE CAUSE IT SEEMS SO FALSE, AN AWEFUL WICKED SPELL THE WAY IT SWAYS THE EARTH HOLDING DAYS AT RANSOM
MOVING FROM NOW TILL… NOW, HOW MUCH TIME DOES THAT TAKE?
WHY CAN’T IT JUST STOP!!!
JUST FOR ONE MINUTE!
LET ME BE!
TIME THIS, TIME THAT…
TIME OF DAY, TIME OF YEAR, TIME OF YOUR LIFE AND MINE THE SAME
A COUNT DOWN FOR THE ROAST, BUZZING—READY
A TIME TO CRY A TIME TO DIE
CYNDI LAUPER’S SINGING, CELL PHONES RINGING
AND THAT RENT SONG…
500 25THOUSANDS…50025THOUSAND 6HUNDRED MINUTES
HOW BOUT SEASONS OF…PRODUCE!
WATERMELON SEASON, STRAWBERRY SEASON, PEACH SEASON, ALMOND SEASON
HOW ABOUT HUNTING SEASONS?
LETS NOT EVEN GO THERE!
THAT DOPE NAMED FUD IS CONFUSED ENOUGH FOR ALL OF US
the LIFESTYLE’s role is to create collective space for active Reflection and Response through the arts. This space is built around dialogue, expression, collaboration, and artistic (ex)change involving international craftspeople and their realities. The Porch Swing series opens up a Reflection and Response residency where we feature a Collective member’s ongoing project through weekly installations.
