My Present is N O W

1 Edition of 10 framed triptych of the letters NOW.

This is one of the Live Art Development Agency’s tenth anniversary commissioned artworks exclusive to Unbound.

If one were to distil a considerable sector of Eastern thought to one word it would be N O W, also a significant underlying notion in performance/live-art. If one were to distil Western capitalist doctrine to one word it would be O W N. N O W and O W N have a distinctly uneasy relationship, ultimately N O W making ownership void.  Yet, in parallel with struggles underlying live-art, who and what has W O N in the attempt to find a principled way of existing in a material world?  Further ways of hanging the work in different orientations open endless possibilities, from the graffitied past of W O Z and Z O W, to simply coming down to a name

N O M.

Ultimately, this present is about all matter being event in time.
