Moving outside spacetime : clay and creative praxis Yeo, Marika St. Rose


This exegesis explores how creative praxes have the potential to disrupt the hold the modern notion of “Time” has on our minds. The exegesis explores this disruption by exposing the ways in which “Time” has contributed to the conditions that produce and sustain violence on a global scale and further offers an analysis regarding the ways in which artistic and creative works allow us to breach from this violence and harm, even if only momentarily. While it is mainly focused on the possibilities that arise through ceramic praxis, it draws from a range of aesthetic approaches that subvert the temporal dominance of a singular unfolding “Time” in order to conceive of the world differently. It is through creative works that it is therefore suggested that there are possibilities to enact alternative options and avenues towards transformation in our global world.
