RHIZOME-TWICE IN TIME

Description

Tiija is a weblog created to put together works that we published

over two years on Rhizome_Raw. These were mainly serial works:
"brackets", "short stories", "art for beginners", etc. Our decision
to make these series inspired by events in our private life ('Place
For Baby'), a reaction to restrictions on publishing images on
Rhizome_Raw ("brackets"), a comment on discussions on Rhizome_Raw
("Deconstruction" was in honor of texts about Derida), or we just
followed something we find attractive as visual (arte-)facts
("Practical handbook"). All the works on this blog were made without
knowing what the next step would be, it was something closer to an
impulsive reaction, different to our earlier way of working.
We made some changes to the work to reflect the specific qualities of
the weblog as a medium. We even made some additions: adding "Place
for B" to contextualize the main idea of "Place for Baby". Our
decision to make a pure image blog, without text, was an attempt to
make the whole thing more phenomenological, explanations on this kind
of rhythm will be disturbing (IMO). We found an interesting
difference between the emotion we had when one of these images appear
on Rhizome_Raw, and the almost clerk-like feeling of arranging the
images on the blog. Both experiences were precious for us, and both
were in their own way instructive.
