2016 Works

Within BROODWORK time is personal, communal, and global. As a marker of time, the inter-generational nature of family comes with a new awareness of mortality and how the past continues to affect the present. Creative parents today also reexamine their own development by assuming the newfound responsibility of fostering anotherís childhood. Changes in methodology within the creative practices reflect research from the Families and Work Institute, which reports that families today spend significantly more time with their children than even a decade ago: creative work often gets produced in small increments of time, and made collaboratively. Work is often thought of within a larger timeline and ethical issues become a focus.

BROODWORK: Marking Time, co-curated with Iris Anna Regn, delineates themes within time through works that explore the process of making: Garnet Hertz waxes and Laura Purdy rips at Juncture (intersecting timelines); John Hall speaks of Interval (a defined length of time); Elise Co and Nikita Pashencov, and Greg Lynn celebrate Occasion (an instant); Mark Newport enlaces through Momentum (an occasion that carries forward infinitely); and JEFF&GORDON draw upon the Expansion (interwoven infinities). We identified these specific topics because they most addressed the subjective and relativistic nature of time. Time is an anti-hierarchical force with a multi-directional nature.
