El tiempo


En algunas oportunidades al regresar a mi casa en las últimas dos cuadras en suave bajada me gustaba disminuir la marcha de mi automóvil, ponerlo en la primera velocidad y dejarlo en suave ralentí.

La impaciencia habitual de la rutina inconsciente nos impulsa acelerar para llegar “pronto”, en vez de llegar en cinco minutos a la velocidad que me gustaba podría llegar en tres.Pero me encantaba ir lento para disfrutar el “paisaje”, sí, el paisaje que todos los días ignoramos, el de nuestra calle, las aceras, los árboles, la calzada, sus irregularidades y huecos, los colores y texturas de los muros, pero sobre disfrutar sobre todo del Tiempo que desconocemos y cambiamos por un frenesí que a nada conduce.
¿Queremos vivir alienados, con la velocidad del nano-segundo, con la prisa de llegar a ningún lugar, sufrir enredados en lo maquinal?.

El tiempo que vivimos es impulsado por nuestra cultura hacia lo infinitesimal, quiero retornar a las distancias a pie, a los espacios donde tiempo lo marcaba el ritmo de los cascos de los caballos sólo interrumpido por el sonido del viento….

Visions: san Crispin, Umbria

My view on long exposure

 a. To express Bergsonian Time: beyond the insipid snapshots of time, the continuous indivisible Time that only is approximated in the clock time version needed to “be on time” in our daily tasks or to perform technical computations.

b. To give the feeling of a painted scene. I believe that in this way one may get what Proust’s complex recovering of one’s past  is about. I have the idea that this process may well be extended to pick up from a foreign (to us) location thoughts and feelings  not experienced by ourselves from a past embedded in the location.Ref. Rupert Shelldrake Morphogenetic Field?

Quotidian scenes: watching TV with Bergsonian time.

 
 Bergsonian time is an amazing idea. I used to despise it long ago when I was a science fan and followed ardently Bertrand Russell's refutation to Bergson. Today I am considering more carefully the idea that Time is indivisible and not just a sequence of snapshots. Having said that, my conclusion is that long exposure describes better reality than "focused" descriptions. That is why I think there is a huge difference between painting  and photography in general.  
 Time a la Bergson. Enjoy

What is Time

What is Time? For physicists it is basically the Line of the Real Numbers System; just a little more than the 2500 years old definition of Aristotle. Naive, naive, naive..
