“TymeLapse Studio (an artist run collective) …. invites all creatives (Art, Writing, Film, etc.) to our first open call. “OverThinker” aims to take inspiration from daily life, anxieties, stresses, and the current situation, to create an engaging online exhibition. We invite all types of submissions, if you think it fits with the title feel free to submit. The exhibition will run from April 25th until May 7th, in which, accepted submissions will be gradually posted on the exhibition Instagram page.” Hailey Barbosa, curator.
“A person who thinks all the time has nothing to think about except thoughts. So, he loses touch with reality and lives in a world of illusions. By thoughts I mean, specifically, chatter in the skull—perpetual and compulsive repetition of words, of reckoning, and of calculating.I’m not saying that thinking is bad; like everything else, it’s useful in moderation, a good servant but a bad master.And all so-called civilised peoples have increasingly become crazy and self destructive because through excessive thinking they have lost touch with reality. That’s to say we confuse signs, words, numbers, symbols, and ideas with the real world.” – Alan Watts, British philosopher.
