2 hours = 120 minutes = 7200 seconds
For my Office Hours project, I will be inviting friends, collaborators, and museum visitors to share this time and space with me in the spirit of creative possibility. Setting the tone of open-ended inspiration, I'll be projecting a stop motion animation of cloud abstractions. These 'clouds' are the signifiers for the idea of inspiration and a metaphor for its ephemeral nature. This 'imaginary substance" (Gaston Bachelard) is a negation of solidity + permanence, a shape-shifting, limitless inspiration. The cloud provides a powerful image in art, myth and the everyday. Lying on the ground looking up, they form and dissolve as we dream, as we imagine.
