Inspiration: Artwork by Tepid and Wisk



A continuous loop repeating itself.

A couple seconds closer to your birthday.

A few seconds closer to death.

A common thing just like the world, or this poem.

A thing that keeps track of when you eat, sleep, drink, eat again, sleep some more, keep
sleeping and not waking up.

Or, a thing older than the word ‘time’ itself.



Some comments from the selection panel:

“An interesting interpretation of ‘Tepid and Wisk’. I liked that each line was one way of thinking about time.”

“Very interesting interpretation of the piece – I love that!”
