Now Expanded

The trilogy is based on readdressing the time relations in the framework of socio-cultural and political aspects of the contemporary times. That is to say, The Lost Moment, Berlin, 2007 looks back to the recent past in order to evaluate today from a different perspective and influence future actions; whereas Immortality sustaining the present the past the future, Rotterdam, 2009 looks towards the future and brings an analysis of today. The third leg on the immediacy of the present moment, Time Capsules and Conditions of Now, London, 2012 investigates the affect of the currency of experience through the distribution of sensible in encounters.

the trilogy is a rephrasing the linear relation of past present future in a non-linear perspective. That is to say, the trilogy underlines the expanded nature of ‘now’; since ‘now’ is no longer an immediate presence (a point in space) but an encapsulation of before and after (a field in space). Specifically, realising the trilogy over six years is, for me, significant in embracing the now’s of the present and the now’s of back then, which will not only formulate an archive of socio-political strands but also a positioning in the contemporary.
