The Porch Swing: Time and Space

Time and Space: Entry IV, by Samuel Bostick.

“Time and Space. This catalog is an expressive venture into time and space. This has been a theme heavy on my mind, especially making the transition from life in Atwater, CA to Brooklyn. Yes, a second is always a second, but nonetheless, a minute in Atwater is very different than a New York minute. It’s crazy! It seems the best way to put it in short is that TIME and SPACE are measures of presence. Even writing this now, I know it’s further and deeper than that. Hope you enjoy the ride…”

Time and Space, Entry IV



A venture through the mystery of time’s power

What is it? How? and why?

Psychedelic trip

3 wheel motion


Subject & plot



Curiousness in passing, as it violently wheels like a cyclone


Time Time Time Time



A Riddle:

What runs and runs an yet never gets tired?


Juxtaposing puzzle bouncing along all rhyme. A call to dedicate life toward a mission, young at heart, hard head, heavy working and gone fishin.


The soul travels through; unraveling the linear expectancy of A-B and B-C.



sleepless metropolitan



Press against the membrane of creativity,

Pressure to produce or get past up





When is the right time?

Gotta grab itand make it yours.

Own it

How long until…?

Practice patience; working efforts, these things take time


She heard it from a song, and used it to chastise—Times a waisting…

Now all I can respond is a line from a song too—***** Don’t kill my vibe


The unincouraged imagination… diagnosis of a divided nation


Red and Blue lights flash whistle, cry, blue and red. A nation in urgent need…

“911 this is an emergency. My neighbor is listening to that god forsaken hippity rabit hop again! And I can hear it. My little child is walking around calling everything  ‘cray’,                                               I don’t even know what that means…”



Purged beyond this life,

A traveler beyond the rationale of here and now

This is a life preceeded by those past

Life, the continuum of life shadowed by the mystereons of the unknown



One an two and Three and four and 7

One an two and Three and four and 12

One an two and Three and four and Dark

Red eyes & Black coffee


The nonstop rock cadence off the tic toc

Urgent pacing

Time erasing

Present to past

Test, moments unfold

A diabolic truth; flow divine inspired

Undefeated in tempo

Chopping blocks away from the life line


Deeper then life itself, dive in if you dare…

The wise advisory is to take all necessary precautions…life raft, buoyant vest, life saver and the good book. Now,




Senses shocked at first contact

Overwhelmed with the change in sensation

A split second later the cold sets in

Feel it now…

Blue, Ice, Sink, Sink

…no, swim! Don’t sink!


Its in moments like these gills would be more than useful

the LIFESTYLE’s role is to create collective space for active Reflection and Response through the arts. This space is built around dialogue, expression, collaboration, and artistic (ex)change involving international craftspeople and their realities. The Porch Swing series opens up a Reflection and Response residency where we feature a Collective member’s ongoing project through weekly installations.
