some other Shapes
Above, a photograph by Cuban artist Glenda Leon titled Every Flower is a Shape of Time (2001) in which the bows from women's lingerie have been recontextualized. Below, a diagram of the shape of time I found at the business website of a professional hypnotist. I read an art historical text as a college freshman by the same title, The Shape of Time: Remarks on the History of Things by George Kubler, which was apparently written during his self-committed residency at an insane asylum. I'm thinking about doing some big diagrammatic drawings of the shape of time.
