Oh, How Pinteresting!: Introducing More Useful Pins →
When you find something you love on Pinterest, sometimes you want to learn more so you can act on baking those cookies, streaming that movie, or buying that couch. That’s why we’re taking a first step toward making pins more useful. We’re also making it easier to pin no matter where you are.

At the conclusion of our Contemporary Art Forum: Art at Large: Art Making in the Long View, we are sharing some reflections here over the next few days. This is the third post in the series of four.
The afternoon included the session “Questioning the Constraints of Time and the Unpredictability of the Creative Process.” A range of perspectives were represented on the panel, with curator Brooke Davis Anderson presenting her exhibition Obsessive Drawing, theorist Svetlanta Boym speaking on the work of Raqs Media Collective and her notion of the off-modern, writer Tan Lin showing his PowerPoint works, and artist Julieta Aranda discussing her conceptual art. Across these varied points of view, certain themes emerged regarding the ways that creative practice can use time as a subject, a medium, and a tool. In particular, the conversation sparked inquiry on how art might be able to expand our individual experience of temporality. Some models that their practices demonstrate include: creating a rupture in the progression of time, opening meditative space in time, manifesting an abstract measurement of time, or distancing us from time’s presence altogether.
What do you think; how might these models inform or alter you own perceptions of time?
