The subject of time has been an area of discussion and writing since time immemorial. We are always either running late or losing patience waiting; we want to hasten things or slow down. Even the most basic of activities like walking, requires a great deal of correct coordination and timing of muscle functions - the idea of time is ingrained in our systems to the extent that even though we’re invariably always making reference to it, we don’t usually think about the workings of the cosmos.
The project looks at different aspects of the time, how we understand it in the physical world, and its emotional and psychological implications. It grapples with theories while also speculating suppositions.
The title of the project, ‘The View from Nowhen’ - is a reference to a philosophy around time that says the past and the future are just as real as the present. It speaks about observing the space-time dimensional block from a point that is outside of the grid and hence lets you perceive everything on an equal footing. This was an important facet that always reminded me to perceive everything I came across in its entirety and objectively.
The final forms, as much as they convey my processes and thoughts, also intend to foment thoughts in the viewers’ minds. Thoughts that perpetuate the dormant internal crises that go unacknowledged in the every day while life happens as white noise in the background.
