Time wasted. Time gained. Time lost again. Time won back. Time given. Time taken. Time divided. It is time. But it is also everybody's time...
Forms of expression are only ever made in limited edition. And words made public without permission dishonour the power of social tradition.
Paradoxically, within the material qualities of language (when inscribed onto a surface) —(in public), rests a potential moment for others to make a mark of / for themselves.
In this way, a surface in figure becomes an others ground—and since function often re-tunes, counter balancing and scaling to invert and unfold its use, and vice versa—between the two, a new kind of removed conversational gestalt chain arises.
Additionally, the visual formation of language takes time. And a moment of, or in waiting, is also conversely short —time can be checked in advance, and through practice, a sense of tranquility of order eventually carries itself.
Unfortunately, a forthcoming rupture, (to time), is never too distant, or too fecund —either by misfortune, or by an unjust sense of sabotage, but protracted as disorder.
Always check what type of time in advance. Time not to affect the individual. Time not to affect the collective. Time to allow time time. It waits for no line.
Time to throw up.
