the way forward

"Time/Bank at e-flux is modeled on existing time banks. Every Time/Bank transaction will allow individuals to request, offer, and pay for services in "Hour Notes." When a task is performed, the credit hours earned may be saved and used at a later date, given to another person, or contributed towards developing larger communal projects. For example, if you happen to be in Beijing or Hamburg and need someone to help you shop for materials or translate a press release, you would be able to draw on resources from Time/Bank without exchanging any money.

"Through Time/Bank, we hope to create an immaterial currency and a parallel micro-economy for the cultural community, one that is not geographically bound, and that will create a sense of worth for many of the exchanges that already take place within our field—particularly those that do not produce commodities and often escape the structures that validate only certain forms of exchange as significant or profitable."

"...we are a resource
for the aesthetic community
to keep pulse on what is being made
locally and across the globe."

scenic routes, haircuts, sunspots, paradox

from february 2009:

"we actually have been very careful hesitant cautious slow about putting the neighborhood into too many words thus far. it is still so young, and we want to let it have a childhood, let it evolve naturally and honestly, even awkwardly if need be. it is its own unique entity, and it is growing, and we are just attempting to take care of it and live out our questions."

...

"over the past year, we have had many conversations about the realities of living in different places together for different lengths of time. we want to emphasize that the traveling neighborhood is not meant to be any kind of strict club membership commitment. very much the contrary; it has stemmed from an acknowledgment of life seasons and the importance of remaining loyal to that individual fluidity. we understand that, as we move about, some people will settle down in different places along the way, and new people will join. we'll float through some cities for just a few months, while some stops will result in permanent residents. and regardless of who is where across the globe at any given time (who is stationary and who is individually or collectively mobile), the idea is that we are always still in the neighborhood together."

...

"to make all of this cohere and grow, we’ve decided to plant 'trees,' or home bases, places where we can have roots, and someone or someones are always holding down fort, and investing in the actual geographic neighborhood. and others can come and go and wander and return as the seasons beckon, and the whole family can have permanent mailing addresses, and storage. in los angeles, our home base will include our first neighborhood office, and we are looking forward to writing all our lists on the walls, and taping up big maps and fabric pockets to collect all of our ideas, and starting a physical archive and research library. this or other home bases may evolve to also include studio, gallery, rehearsal, and performance space, and possibly a cafĂ©, and oh, you know, there are many possibilities. one step at a time, but mind you, we’re thinking big."

call for mail art submissions

"Mail art as a medium has the potential to include layers of meaning and performance, due to its temporal qualities. Consider all the different pieces that make up mail visually and manually: stamps, envelopes, paper, and/or non-traditional contents and containers; plus the acts of opening, unfolding and reading."

don't you always listen to your mama

we may all be far
apart but the barn doors will
still open and close
