Our most common forms of keeping track of our lives – the CV and the social media timeline – plot ‘career stages’ and ‘life events’ along a straight line of standard units. Do they let us represent our most valuable experiences as we really live them? Cathy Haynes leads a workshop in experimenting with other ways of mapping time, taking inspiration from the novel Tristram Shandy, designer Otto Neurath and ancient Stoic philosophers.
This event is free but booking is strongly advised. Under 16's must be accompanied by an adult. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org to reserve a place. Please note this event involves walking across uneven parkland.
This event is the second in a series of field studies exploring alternative ways of keeping and thinking about time. The series is part of Cathy Haynes’s research project Stereochron Island for the Chisenhale Gallery Victoria Park Residency2013-14.
