“It is about time” is an ongoing visual storytelling project about the human relationship with time in a culture of speed. An illustrated praise for slowing down life’s pace and an invitation to practice meditation.
Five different “Children books for adults of all ages” can be downloaded for free here.
May all beings be present.
All the artwork curves have a very high level of detail and can be scaled up indefinitely. You can see some detail images here:
Here is a bit of background about the project:
The human world is going too fast. One might argue that there are many problems in that world that need solving quickly. But taking a step back and having a more profound look, one might also consider that speed itself is a root cause of many of those problems. After all, it is the increasing human hyperactivity and never ending demand for more that is depleting the natural resources at a speed nature is unable to keep up with, and replenish. It is the fear of a future of scarcity, that underlie most of the social and geostrategic conflicts in the present. Maybe it is about time to question our relationship with time and ponder the impact that speed culture has, both in our personal and natural environment…
The project includes free – Children books for adults of all ages – that advocate for a cultural shift towards slowing down life’s pace, and propose the practice meditation as a simple solution to bring presentness and peace to our minds. Experiencing that within us, below the gray clouds of our hyperactive gray matter, there is a natural source of inner peace that we can always come back to, is quite a present that deserves being shared. And that is what this project is about.
