Real Time is a hybrid, multi-platform project reflecting on time and the present – a deep breath, a slowing down, a taking stock.

Rejecting the anxiety-inducing FOMO of the current livestream drive, Real Time is a slowly unfolding project engaged with a mode of deceleration, instead of ramping up the feeling of ‘constant now’ we so desperately need to leave behind. Consisting of contributions from artists, designers, writers and musicians, this exhibition takes place across various spaces, from gallery website, to radio, social media, playlists, PDF publication and email. Taken as nodes in an organic, reactive network, the constituent parts will collide, overlap, bounce off of each other and the outside world to create refracting frictions and possibly, hopefully, portals for a slow, contemplative meditation.

At its core, Real Time offers an optimistic, progressive vision of art and its reception. The project advocates a change of pace, reversing the trend of an increasingly accelerated response to the now, exploring alternative models of being and comprehension, through the elusiveness of the present.

Please note that the gallery is  currently closed and this exhibition takes place online across a variety of platforms. Works will be released slowly over the duration of the show.

Anil Bawa-Cavia, TMI, 2020

TMI is a collection of minimal ambient compositions taking as their origin the sonority of the Bansuri flute. The ancient Vedic bamboo instrument is given an unapologetically synthetic treatment, drenched in diffusion algorithms designed for immersion. Influenced by the Indian aesthetic notion of Rasa, a multivalent term denoting juice, essence or flavour, each composition is conceived as a single tonal expression arising from a process akin to a ‘pulping’ of sound. AAB is the sound alias of Berlin based computer artist Anil Bawa-Cavia.
