It’s Time [working title]
Issue 40:1 | March 2020

Time is the messenger, inspired by the impetus of the historical moment that brings about change and the broad reach of its human and inhuman metaphor. This edition takes a long view of the way artists make sense of the past and the experience of time passing, supported by the diverse forms of knowledge that connect the past, the present and the future in relation to discrete systems theories and beliefs.

Time is archival, historical, geological and revelatory of the divide between psychological thinking and the physical laws of the universe. Fixed as fluid, durational, objectified as crystallised, or symptomatic of our abandonment into a state of entropy, ultimately time is just another medium.
