LOOK-LISTEN-WAIT TOWARD THE KALPA

Being  a continuation of

TAP-STROKE-TICKLE

Keith Ball 2018

(After God, Brancusi and You.)

An ongoing work by unknown artists.


The change we can effect with even the minor intervention of a tap of the knuckle, the stroke of a velvet glove, even the light touch of a tickle, will, although imperceptible, be inevitable.

Such minimal physical effect will, like the dripping of water, slowly but surely shape the work

Three empty stone plinths simultaneously form the origin, the support, the body and the  passing of the work

You are invited to contribute to the slow gestation of a final piece which will never be seen.  

Time will witness the change.

  Kalpa is a Sanskrit word meaning an Aeon, or an unfathomable amount of time in human terms, the time between the creation and recreation of a world or universe.

Asked about the kalpa, Buddha  explained:

"Imagine a giant rocky mountain at the begining of kalpa, approximately 6 yojanas tall. You take a small piece of silk and wipe the mountain once every 100 years.

Acording to the Buddha, the the mountain will be completely depleted even before the kalpa ends.
