In this workshop we will be playing with some of the more intriguing and fantabulous notions of time and temporality gleaned from the Time Zone Research Lab. We will explore hyper-objects, hybridity, vertical time, retrocausality and more, in a fun and exploratory tone. There are no wrong ideas! We will splash in the pools of Time! We will use collage, colour, found sculpture and poetry to play and ponder.
This second SAY MORE event, part of the Coming Together Series, is a monthly lunch time gathering to connect either in person or online. Each event will have a community facilitator. Bring your lunch and join us! Coffee, snacks, and tea provided.
