The Uneven Intensities of Duration
2008-2010

In an essay titled The Future of Space, philosopher Elizabeth Grosz draws upon the writing of both Deleuze and Bergson to put forth shifting and significant notions about space and time. These writers are presenting space not as a container—static and homogeneous—but as an effect of matter and movement. It is not given space, but an unfolding space. And like space, duration is seen as embodying qualities of unevenness, heterogeneity, multiplicity, along with states of contraction and expansion. These proposals about space and time, the idea that events have their own unfolding and the concept of a web of interlocking durations, inform this suite of drawings.
