I work on time vessels because I have problems knowing time. What is time? I'm always chasing time and I want to hold on to it. My ten minutes now does not seem to have the same duration as the ten minutes from the other time. Working in forms forces me to think and see. So I read books and hear things about time. We make tools. New devices are supposed to save us time but instead seem to speed things up so much that now we can't catch up. We save time so we can do more and do it quick. but I want to have now a bit longer.
But we do manipulate time. We collect our spotty memories and make up a story of the future to tell ourselves. We stay in one thought as if the time has stopped. I write now. You will read it in my future what I wrote which is in my past. I will know the next word in my future, and it is my past by the time you read it. It's a zen dialogue.
