“There are far more sophisticated ways to slide the time scale into overlapping frames. [Masanobu] Fukuoka deals with time stacking. What we observe in Nature is a set of successional elements….What Fukuoka did was to lift these years and set them on top of each other. He didn’t have to fallow, because he never removed the main part of the crop from the soil. He stacked his legumes with his grains, with his ducks, and with his frogs….He started the next crop before the last crop was finished. Besides pushing sequences on top of each other, he also pushed sequences into each other.”*
To slide the time scale into overlapping frames.
As with the other two rooms, the video for “aerograms from the by&by” (2017) would occupy much of an entire wall. Others would determine how the remaining visual record gets presented (framed prints, light projections, photocopied handouts, playing cards, postage stamps, whatever). The script samples moments from post-apocalyptic and speculative fiction as well as resources on homesteading and permaculture.
