From the invite:
"In his book What time is this place?
, American urban theorist Kevin Lynch coins the term timeplace
, which he describes as 'a continuum of the mind'. He discusses our sense of time and in particular, our sense of being in a particular time. Timeplace
has to do with this sensation and the way in which one's environment might or might not reinforce it.
In November 2011, McNulty presented the scripted performance The Eyes of Ayn Rand
at Performa 11 in New York. The Face of Something New
follows on from this piece, attempting to synthesize a timeplace
- unpicking relationships between words, images, gestures, media and physical space - and reconfiguring these elements in relation to the spatial specificities of the Scriptings showroom
in Berlin, Wedding."
