Total Timeline Drawings

We tend to think the moment is almost invisible by the common human perception of time because of the tiny amount of space it’s taking on a timeline. Therefore, our culture is often split in half by the question: should we rely on the moment or not, if it’s that notably small? By combining the ‘Mapping of the Emptiness’ and ‘Relative Explanations’ methods, daily used in the Inner School of Open Studies, we can zoom in and freeze one random moment for a few days. Probably, it will allow us to make some assumptions about what is happening between of reaching and leaving the moment.

“Relative Explanations” cycle. “Total Timeline” series. 12 pieces. Black paperboard, white chalk, white gel ink, 50 × 70 cm. 2018.
