THE TIME IT TAKES TO TAKE THE TIME
A body of work reliant on the passing of time and long term effects of sun exposure to fabric. "The Time It Takes To Take The Time" is a collection of works made in the artists' bedroom windows, warehouse skylights and architectural elements on rooftops in Oakland, California. Manufactured colored fabric is placed in these locales and without the use of dye, emulsion or any purposefully manipulated chemical process, imagery emerges through time (4 -12 months) and ultraviolet exposure. At once a homage to the power of the sun, the works also provide a haunting intimacy and an effect that blurs the conversations of painting and photography. With society being neck deep in the information age and reliant (if not addicted) to the immediacy of social media, the concept of time takes precedence. The works in T.T.I.T.T.T.T.T. become mile markers and are made by honoring the passing of time, not the acceleration of it.
