Future of Love Project
FOLLOWING IN THE FOOTSTEPS OF “ANIMAL” & “HEAVENLY” LOVE WE TAKE A THIRD STEP, THROUGH THE WILDERNESS AND BEYOND, INTO THE INEXPLICABLE NATURE OF LOVING WITH Future of Love PROJECT.
From a personal perspective 3 artists unravel the practical, un-predictable, inexplicable and yet ordinary nature of Love, through excavating notions about, and projections into the future. The project is an assemblage counting down premonitions – predictions, and prophecies of the future whilst unpicking the numerics of hope, fear, faith expectation. What territory does the future share with the material yet in-material substance known as love? FOL is a simultaneous unfolding of the irresolvable questions- “When…?”, “How…?”, and “What if…?” through two virtual organisms- LOVE and the FUTURE.
At every opportunity contemplating the future
brings upon some sort of self imposed nostalgia-
an unpacking of memories attempting
to get to the bottom of it all, I suppose
As I sort through the items which reappear
some rosy, some haloed by a hazy glow or even not to be trusted-
some stink so bad they make me turn them back over
so I no longer see their underside
I must be about half way there I guess
Not contemplating death that frequently
Though I seem to encounter it often enough- recently
Like a stray neighbourhood cat purring & playing tame,
Against my legs
Silky one way
Velvet the other.
Taking liberty to soften his nest in my lap with his claws
Life seems to have a strange though distorted symmetry I suppose-
On the surface of things
A premonition wishing itself somewhere
Between the beginning and the end.
Only sometimes the other way around.
