Time Wasting.

Tuesday, February 26, 2013

Alyson Provax's "Time Wasting Experiment" chronicles - in letterpress - time the printmaker has spent procrastinating. "This series is a sort of audit of how I spend my time," she writes, "but the prints could also be thought of as permission slips allowing you to spend a period of time in a wasteful way." 


How refreshing. See more at Alyson's website, here, and Etsy shop, here.

HAH. Oh man, I could fill a book with time-wasting activities like these. I think she's onto something. :)

This sounds all too familiar! Thanks for sharing;)

Yesss! I love this. It reminds me of that episode of The Office where Pam has to make a time sheet of what Michael does all day. One hour on the time sheet just says "Bill Cosby Impression." Haha!ui

Yes, I can relate. I should start timing myself when I relive embarrassing moments.

Ha! I love these. I spend a little too much time reading blogs that I love but that's time well spent in my opinion :0)

this is awesome!! mine would be like "1.5 hours cursing wedding planning", "20 minutes playing with mini schnauzer", "2 minutes devouring 5 nectarines"...

Oh, I LOVE this Shoko! I wonder how many minutes of my life I've compared nearly identical options or dreaded the inevitable. Actually, come to think of it, I'd rather NOT know :)

Those are beautiful.

Shoko said...

Chelsea, yes! Forgot about that!

Lydia, me, too...

Bea, I agree! :)

FTLA, any time spent playing with a miniature schnauzer is not time wasted!

I love this. My days have been filled with many many minutes staring at empty boxes wishing they would fill themselves. Then a few more minutes staring at empty suitcases convinced all our things won't fit. Then five minutes dreading the whole packing process... And only then does any actual packing begin.

This is great. I certainly spent my 4 minutes remembering embarrassing moments this week! :)
