In // The Time Being
Three found chairs and a bench, painted gold, venerate ’the time being'. Softened by punch-hooked cushions, their symbolic embellishments refer to repetitive patterns of breath and thought, they are the same, but different. They are solitary, yet communal.
Like a game of musical chairs, we can sometimes feel we are ‘winning’ at the game of life, and at other times at a loss for belonging. In childhood, adolescence, and adulthood, we need communal guidance and support for our ideas and inner work.
Following a moment of presence and stillness in a chair, inspiration for action arises. By trusting our own impulses to move with attention and intention we can then stand up, with deliberation, for ourselves and each other.
