23 Studio Time: Work of the Living Watch
Program dates: July 30, 2012 - August 17, 2012
Application deadline: March 2, 2012
Three weeks, six talks, and studio time.
Each day might begin with a walk up the mountain or a long swim in the pool. And as the sign in the photograph announces, Come As You Are.
Our legs take us along and we come to a place where we look out, heads afloat on the horizon of our thoughts. Our heads are contained within our fingertips, hands, or feet. Walking is the eternity of our living moment, but it can never tell us of what we might see. Looking and listening from a floating world.
Events seem just as they always have -- or do they?
This residency will focus on time in the studio while also incorporating walks, conversation, studio visits, and readings as we contemplate the structure of experience. Such study is like hiking up a mountain. As one climbs and becomes aware of wider and wider vistas, it is important to not lose sight of details, at least not the critical ones. We must let go of some, however; life is too short.
In addition to Visual Arts facilities access, Studio Time participants will be invited to attend the public lectures and meet the faculty and participants of the Banff Research in Culture (BRIC) residency, The Retreat: A Position of dOCUMENTA (13), from August 2 to 15, 2012.
