The monumental and ultra sophisticated book brings together, for the first time, the surprising formal variations developed around the sequence of words ‘I am wasting my time’ by Federico Pepe for three years, using different media and techniques.
The work is driven by the search for a potentially infinite aesthetic heterogeneity, pushing experimentation with its chosen sign to the absolute limit. The importance of this complex project lies first and foremost in the light it sheds on the value of time as a variable in artistic creation and performance.
Designer and architect Patricia Urquiola writes: “I think Federico continues to work on ‘I am wasting my time’ as a way of not losing this area of freedom he has, like a mandala so that he doesn't forget the infra-time in which to create.”
