Andrew Cozzens : December 14th, 2016

slide-2

Greetings listeners.

Obviously, we all know what an hour is, and how long it takes-60 minutes. But what does it feel like? Could you judge an hour’s worth of time without a clock? Or does even the idea of distancing yourself from such a device cause you anxiety?

With the world of schedules, business meetings, and appointments we’re all heavily reliant on time telling machines to help us be where we need to be when we need to be there. Some times though, an overly rigid schedule can have negative effects…

My guest today is Andy Cozzens. Andy is a professor at the Kentucky College of Art & Design as well as an established artist in Louisville’s art scene. He is incredible interested in the progression of time, and his work plays on our perception of it. With many of his pieces, he hopes the viewer finds a therapeutic quality and stop for a moment of calm. And much like interacting with Andy’s art, the creation requires taking time, slowing down—Andy does hours of tests, research, and planning for all his work. Andy is yet another victim of a full schedule, so these hours can be as beneficial as any meditation.
