Course blog for American University PERF-570, Fall 2014
I happened upon this article about “Days of Endless Time” an exhibit on view at Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden as of tomorrow. It uses film and video to examine the art of standing still, slowing down, or even moving backwards in a society that seems to only bull forward. The fast-paced nature of life is a social issue that only seems to be getting worse. People have to work harder to survive. Paid vacation days are offered used as incentive and yet many can’t help but feel guilty when cashing them in. I think this is a great exhibit focus and think I’ll even check it out since it’s in DC.
