Are we killing time yet?

An exhibition takes on mindless making.

This installation explores the process of making as a notion of passing time in an attempt to capture time in its physical form. The work is inspired by the essay Praise of Idleness by Bertrand Russell who comments on how advancements of the industrial revolution are allowing us to live leisurely with the bulk of the manual labour stop taking up most of our days.

As we lose the tangible relationship with the objects we created, the act of making with its ritualistic and repetitive nature increasingly becomes a romantic notion of contemplation, meditation and self-expression. The objects resulting from the making process become a tangible and tactile measurement of ‘time’.

Come and join the artist at the exhibition opening at GAFFA – gallery 4 on 14 March from 6pm.
