The Persistence of Memory?

Time. What does it mean to you? The passing of one minute to the next. One day. A year. A century. A millennium? Is is even possible to think about that? Or do you think of time as being in the workplace. At school. Monday to Friday. 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Weekends. Holidays. Time off – the weekend. When I was teaching my life seemed to be split into term-times. Breaks when I could have a life. If I wasn’t ill, or had a hundred reports to write or coursework to mark. No, let’s not dwell on that time.

Is time a constraint? Or freedom? Do you take the time to stand and stare? To absorb the beauty that is around you? Or do you rush through life hating to waste time.

Time to sleep. Time to dream. Time to contemplate. Time to have fun. Times of drought. Doing ‘time’. A season. An era. The beat of music. And yes, time does go faster as you grow older.

Can time be timeless? Are you having a good time, the time of your life?

Thursday Special

Paula’s (Lost in Translation) challenge this week is Life Size

Other public artworks by Černý that are worth seeking out are his statues of babies. Three of these large statues are at the entrance to the Museum Kampa, and more are on the TV tower in Žižkov. The large, crawling rugrats have disturbing machine-like slots on their faces. These Babies are part of Černý’s project to make the Žižkov TV Tower more beautiful, as it has been named one of the world’s most ugly buildings. A swarm of the mutant babies crawls on the tower’s exterior. At night they are lit up in the colours of the Czech flag.
