Abstract [en]

This essay presents my views as an artist/craftsperson on different perspectives on time. In using methods of repetition and inefficiency I investigate how to translate these perspecitves into material visualisations whilst also reflecting on the process of utilizing bodily repetitions within a material presentation.

Binding together thoughts of political theorist Hannah Arendt, writers Mitch Albom and Roland Paulsen, philosopher Albert Camus, theoretical physicist Stephen Hawking and Greek mythology, as well as other artists together with the bodily knowledge of repetitive making, I provide disparent discussions on times' implications on western society and use these discussions to attempt to position my own making in the field of craft and art. In a way this is a gathering of these repetitive actions of inefficient time-consumption whose primary focus is to take time, whilst also asking questions about the role of craft and the hand made in a time where everything seems to be accelerating towards a growing efficiency.

The works of this master project are Timepieces that together create the project - Fabric of Time.
