about

“Tripped"

I've been thinking a lot about stretching time.
smearing textures to obscure but also to take a closer look.
I think what we all want is more easily found either
birds eye or magnified to the most extreme.

I've been thinking about
stretching,
stretching
time.

A moment lost, then found,
then explored to infinity, then perhaps forgotten.

So caught up in the immediate – we lose sight of the infinite,
the looping —

I've been thinking a lot about now
but maybe in a way you haven't thought of,
(maybe you had or have before)
but I've been thinking a lot about examination,
magnification as retribution and freedom.

I've been thinking about the end —
is it so different than now or
does it merely act as bookend
and thus drama is procured —

I've been thinking about
literally
emotions smeared slowly
across something that acts as canvas —

I think we all look for canvases as friends and
lovers as mirrors,
to investigate —
exploring time,
exploring the infinite —
I've been thinking a lot about stretching these times,
one moment as symbology
but realization that all moments are just as equal and
profundity in the mundane,

I've been thinking about magnification and
the decision to shift the mundane to a profound status —
to lose ones self again and again through magnification
-/ what a rush —
to actually care about now as apposed to
conceptualizing the
living fuck out of it,
instead of beating your
life fucking senseless with
irony leaving it
alone to die
-1 non
I've been thinking about
concepts of emotional exposure
-2 but
at what point is the exposure too much
at what point do you snap?
I've been thinking about stretching moments to cherish
what there is in front of me,
I don't want to lose
what there is in front of me,
I want to celebrate exposure,
stretching,
smeared emotions —

the first time I thought this way was
when it started
there were
references to previous masters
yes,
I want to be like the pollock of sound
I want to find inherent freedom
in the lack of structure
I want to find the most structure
after tipping
a tipping point
to see what happens then
