"Tales From The Teapot" (一壶千金)
"Tales From The Teapot"  by island6 Art Collective (Liu Dao)
BLURB
Time is all around us, we are affected by it in every aspect of our lives, but how should we view our relationship with it? Scientists imagine the internal clock as a counting pacemaker, the more pulses you count the longer a given duration seems. Our sense of time in the present versus our recollection of it, results in contradictory impressions of the concept of time. In the present it is experienced through emotions and sensations, while looking back it’s a different perspective. When we are enjoying the moment, it always ends before we realize it. However when reminiscing, time seems stretched out again because our minds play back these stories like Tarkovsky’s “Andrei Rublev” (1966). Sometimes we don’t need to follow the accelerating tempo of this world, take your time to observe every splatter of Jackson Pollock’s “Mural” (1943) and feel its intensity. Maria Abramovic used to teach her students to spend ten minutes to drink a cup of water and use all their senses to feel every sip. From time to time, indulge yourself to perceive the world around you. Count the drips from the teapot. Feel the rhythm and vibrations. After all, life is merely droplets of time. How will you fill your cup?
