Im/Permanence is a concrete human challenge, but it is also a conceptual, social and personal component of what it means to be a living organism, by definition continuously both in flux and in stasis. Eyedrum’s Im/Permanence program of events offers artists opportunities to engage in conversation about the symbols, artistic and linguistic, that illuminate this conflict. How do we talk about it with ourselves and with others? Is it possible to connect with and convey experiences of permanence and impermanence directly, without communicative symbols? Is death actually a grin reaper, and are we just too nervous to notice? In what ways do change and intransience bind us to time and/or free us from it? How do we engage, resist, disclose, discount, accept, recoil from the im/permanence that defines and dominates nearly every aspect of our reality?
