"Times waits for no man" has long been the catalyst that has propelled man to make use of his conscious existence. Time is an observable quantity created by man to keep track of the motions of our mysterious Universe. Yet now, perhaps more than ever, does man seek to use time to alleviate the pressures of an unexplainable existence through applications that measure and calculate the value of our time.
Douglas Hoekzema, aka Hoxxoh attempts to show us a different way of viewing time through a means of exploring its natural fabric. His work creates a new foundation and approach to evaluating and appreciating time.The oscillation of the pendulum paints time through gravity's natural pull. Expressing how we can be pulled in one direction, when we are really meant to be going in another. How resistance creates a struggle and a false sense of control. Where if we follow the natural flow of times predetermined, yet unseen path, an experience of beauty and pure form will take shape.
Hoxxoh's work isn't so much about the ebbs and flows of time eventually determining whether our existence will stand to be recognized, but instead shows that time in and of itself is a beautiful energy upon which to be marveled. His works represent what happens when we let go of our control of time and let its predetermined course take control.
