This collage series explores the concepts of social rites and their connection to the passing of time. The compositions portray different motives for social gatherings such as music, sports, drinking, eating, party, love, religion, travel, and fashion. The pop prism brings some drama and tension pulsating through the clocks ticking from one generation to another. I have experimented with some paints and cassettes to reinforce the camp effects in the form of this work. Time & Rituals intends to remind viewers of the essence of the Latin phrase carpe diem. The overall message is to play the tape and get the boarding pass, get ready, and go because the time is now.
