Moments in Time: On Narration and Slowness

Some brief overview of book

A number of key contemporary art works have focused on temporality, and in particular on strategies to create pauses and moments of slowness that counter the pervasive speed of this age of spectacles, rapid acceleration, and the digital conquest of space and time. This book looks at the works of several acclaimed international artists - James Coleman, Tacita Dean, Stan Douglas, Douglas Gordon, Steve McQueen, Bruce Nauman, Rosemarie Trockel, and Bill Viola - who explore the relationship between temporal and narrative structure. These are artists who question the legibility of meaning by altering our accustomed comprehension of time.

In film, video, and slide projections, these artists have extended the moment of perception to the point of illusionary timelessness.
