Making Space for Doing Nothing Helps My Artistic Practice
“Together, Odell’s books point to the expansive possibilities of understanding both time and attention not as individual goods to be spent and sold and saved and wasted—but as collective goods, to be shared and cultivated and practiced in community. Instead of paying attention, we can practice it. Instead of managing time, we can garden it. And think about all the art we might grow, if we practice our creative work that way instead.”
I have yet to read Jenny Odell's latest book, but I really liked this piece and how it took the concepts Odell talks about and puts them into ideas for things you can do to cultivate seeing time differently along with some great ways to do some art at the same time.
