I cannot reconcile myself with the idea of time. I cannot control it, slow it down or speed it up - and yet, I try. In the preface to Henri Bergson's Key Writings, Keith Ansell Pearson states that 'duration is non-representational, and as soon as we think it we necessarily spatialise it (Bergson, 2002) Is the achievement of time in art an experiment that is doomed to failure? How can we ever 'capture' time in any artwork when time is an indivisible and incessant flow? Much as I try, I fear the work of art cannot really contain time, at least not entirely. Ultimately, the artist is temporal and time is eternal.
