WAIT TIME AND SEDIMENTS
watercolor on paper
(The following is a conversation that never happened between an imaginary viewer named Dr. Canklewarts and myself. )
Dr. Canklewarts: Wait?… are those words? I can’t read it. What does it say?
Me: They all say different things, this one says, “A Representative Will Be With You Shortly”, this one says, “To Continue In English Press Two”
Dr. Canklewarts: Huh?.. Why? Do they all say stuff like that?
Me: Yeah, they all have lines taken from automated voice systems, like when you call to pay a bill. This one says, “To Make a Payment Press Three”
Dr. Canklewarts: Couldn’t you at least pick pretty words, like from a poem or a famous quote?
Me: I could have, but I decided to do something else. I don’t get bored with this.
Dr. Canklewarts: Is there something I’m missing? I’m not really sure what I’m looking at.
Me: Well… It is what it is. Not that there isn’t an idea behind it. There are many ideas behind these. I could go into a whole big spiel about it if you want.
Dr. Canklewarts: Please don’t. Art shouldn’t be so hard to explain.
Me: I agree. But, it really would only take a couple of minutes and a small amount of mental effort.
Dr. Canklewarts: Anyhoo, good luck with all this stuff. Do you think there is a market for this kind of thing?
