I've been debating the merits of industrialization and standardized time using my own experiences of deja vu, lucid dreams, grief, and personal growth through writing, sculpture and video. This Was the Future began on New Year's Eve 2015/16 with a 2,700 mile train trip across the US, crossing time zones in the hopes of chasing the year's end ad absurdum (we celebrated four times). The first part of TWTF examines the railroad and other underpinnings of standardized time, and I'm working on the second part now - non-standard, aimless, warping, layered personal times.
Some pieces include:
Six channel video installations, including video recordings of Deja Vu, 2015-2018
Tracing the train route across the US on NYE 2016, with notes on all video files taken.
Drawings of railroad expansion by decade from 1830 - 1910
A clock that takes its tick from my heartbeat
Water clocks that erode stone, 2L at a time
