SEE FLOWERS IN HELL

December 2020

Looking out of the bedroom window this evening with a welcomed sleeplessness, my eyes touched in an instant and what I looked at touched right back. Before thought. It was as if the distance time creates became obsolete.

I get up, google time and stumble across an article written about Albert Einstein by Philosopher Rudolf Carnap: 

“Einstein said the problem of the Now worried him seriously. He explained that the experience of the Now means something special for man, something essentially different from the past and the future, but that this important difference does not and cannot occur within physics. That this experience cannot be grasped by science seemed to him a matter of painful but inevitable resignation. So he concluded ‘that there is something essential about the Now which is just outside the realm of science.’” 

Or perhaps outside of time. In that moment of perception perceiving beyond body memory to that which we are and not separate from staring right back.  

See Flowers In Hell is a body of work that is an expression of time. But with its longing to understand beyond it.
