The Porch Swing: Time and Space

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

TIME

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

OR

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.
