Though informed by natural occurrences, like daylight’s collapse into nighttime, variations in weather, and earth’s rotation, the ways humanity in which understands time are intensely constructed.  Thirty seconds in a minute.  Sixty minutes in one hour.  Twenty-four hours in a day.  Three hundred and sixty-five days in a year.  Ten years in a decade and so on.  Humans rely on practical machines like wristwatches and in sundials to be reminded of the hour.  The passage of time can also be perceived by actions such as counting tree trunk rings or witnessing changes in the environment.

This collection of work proposes an investigation into the realities associated with and affected by time.  How do things add up?  Where can things be taken from here?  How can experiences and occurrences be applied futuristically?  What defines the future?

HAND in rotation was curated by Kathleen Giordano, an intern who awaits her B.S. in Studio Arts with a Graphic Design Concentration.

Featured artists include Kevin Van Aelst, Cynthia Back, Claudia Cron, Phyllis Crowley, Alyse Rosner.  Statements, bibliography also available as PDF.

Each month we invite a member of the Artspace team to curate a collection of work.
