Time Takes Time is a momentum around paper & words with a focus on the processes, materiality, touch and smell of prints, letters, inks and stained fingers.
Time Takes Time connects Greek and international artists and designers for a moment of co-creation within various workshops and print studios around the city of Athens. It takes place within strong local-global interconnections and seeks to weave between them a relationship and a possibility for tuning-in. Time Takes Time operates as a creolization of points of view, techniques, skills, and imaginaries, not to be seen as distinct entities. It merges layers of technologies from print ambrotypes, fax machine thermal ribbon, up to 3d printing and algorithm data poetry. Time Takes Time aims to combine diverse intimate feelings and subjective relations to the city of Athens through the lens of printed matter as to let waves of resonance emerge between alternative but complementary processes of work.
Time Takes Time organises city walks through its interconnected workshops and spaces as to allow the various processes to be experienced by the public. Each walk is max 4 hours.
