How can we explore the obscure and enigmatic verges of our identities as human beings and deeply beyond this realm?
Can we transmit and interlace our own and the collective past experiences into the rhizome of Future?
How do we speculate and realise the futuristic approaches in the space of Now?
How can we distinguish ourselves from the presence of Now?
Can we overtake our current time by imagining possible selves in the Future?
Are we identifying or confronting our present selves with the flow of Now-ness?
How can we transcend our cultural, sexual, and ego identities of the PAST into the FUTURE?
How can we overcome dissipating dichotomies and the inevitable separation between the human and the world itself?
NOWINTHEPASTINTHEFUTUREINTHENOW plays with the notions and perceptions of time spectrum, investigates its refractions & distortions in the space continuum, and ourselves, inside this shifting structure. It also embodies the idea of non-acceptance of our predestined fate depending on our location in the time-scale and an attempt to transgress these boundaries beyond history and identity frames, in order to finally re-invent ourselves, as well as our inner and outer environments.
Time as an abstract concept, ontological ground, absolute and independent of a perceiver. Time as an energy, source of knowledge and paradoxes, transmutational archivist, experiential transmitter. Time as what absorbs us completely, playing and constantly interacting with us.
We as a vessel of particles, lost and fluctuating in the spacetime matrix, searching for new upgraded versions of ourselves. Where are we, actually?
Is this all just about setting the context and the current perspectives parallax?
Time seems to be always encapsulated in happenings, thus, the properties of these events shape how we experience time. This is especially true in such a global event like virus epidemic or financial depression, we find ourself being passively shifted and oscillated between various “time zones”.
Anxious and speculating on the unknown future, calculating the loss of the accumulated, or loosing the connection with what we are doing at the moment, as virus of prejudices and misconceptions in our healthy ecological mindset. Can virus be a stimulus to find unexplored territories while the contemporary map seems to appear unsatisfying? Can virus be perceived as a trigger to shake our belief systems and re-invent our modes of conscious living towards sustainability?
We are experiencing time not only as the container of processing physical phenomena, human interaction, memory, or fantasy, but also, excluding the context and focus at the pure-inner perception of “personal time”. This experience might enable us to gain insights on how we evaluate ourselves in response to the outer world, furthermore, a sense of stability emerges from the impermanent reflections of our states of mind.
