The blog of Terry Border.
Cool as always :-)I find it slightly disturbing, though, that the parent will probably outlive the kid.
Holm,That is FUNNY! LOLSeriously Terry, how do you do this?!?How and where do you get those tiny tv's, car, chair, violins and all the props you use. It just amazes me....Can you do one with sushi?
I agree with Holm: wouldn't the adult have most of their sand out of the top?
i think the blue lighting adds a certain eerie feeling to this. me likey.
This one speaks volumes. I do believe this is the first time I've felt bad for an inanimate object. Just wow.
It would be interesting if we could all see how much sand we had left.Sushi? I've thought about it. I'm sure someday...
This one is thought provoking. The message- Time is running out. Maybe that kids won't stay young forever so take time to play with them?
Good one! You rock.
What do they say on that soap opera.... as with the sands of time, so go the Days of Our Lives??? I probably got the quote wrong but it's something like that.
I like the title "inanimate objects."
nice, wasting time watching TV. Time running out. ect and so forth.is it just a coincidence that as he's watching his head is emptying?
Passing time?It works in a couple of ways!
lol, this is great. It could kind of work for computers too (Im not saying you should change it, I'm just realizing how much time I spend in front of this stupid machine :p)
Although I'm think I know what you meant it to represent, I did think the same thing as Holm and ~DD~. In MHO, I think that it would be a more effective message if the kid's time was full and the parent's was nearly out. Especially since he's sittin' on the couch with a beer. ;-)
And then there is the matter of the little cop car. Paired with the blue light, what is going on I wonder...
I love the whole thing. What a sad message.I do agree with Tina that the parent should have less sand in the top, and the child should be almost full at the top.But, I have never tried to photograph moving objects.
Am I the only one who finds it *intriguing* that the child has more sand? Sad that the parent will outlive their child and are wasting the time they have watching television...
wheeee swing me higher Mommy!Hey Dad...is that the good guy or the bad guy? ... pardon me while I just enjoy them... lol ........ they are only timers....eggs anyone?
I know... if we could all see exactly how much time we had left, wouldn't we live our lives differently?
Those are great! What agreat message. It is sad how many parents dont spend time with their children.
terry,u r the best ^^
What a lesson in life through art. You do an excellent job reminding us that our lives will all run out some day. It's all a matter of how we enjoy our time here. Whether you like to climb mountains, play with your kids, or just watch TV we all need to make sure we enjoy the time before it runs out.Thanks for the reflective moment, Terry. Keep 'em coming.
Congratulations for your creations. I have added you to my links. I am visiting you.Sorry for my English. I´m Spanish.Kisses
adorable yet morbidly spooky... it's wonderfuli do think the kid's emptier top is kinda sad, but considering how hard it would be to flip them in sync and take the pic when the smaller one would empty out much faster, we shouldn't complain to terry about it... besides, intentional sadness would almost be better :)but i hope the pic just decided to turn out this way, imitating life and all that
and sorry to ramble, but i presume the kid is growing, and since i'm no expert on sand timers' maturity and probably neither are you, we can't really tell how long it would live anyways
Maybe when the sand runs out, the timers just get tired and have to sleep upside down like bats to recharge. :D So the parent with all the sand up top is not tired, whereas the kid with less sand should go to bed. Heehee....
Excellent work, as usual. Very imaginative!
Please have more time, you're amazing!
Seriously, you´re a genious!
The hour glasses, are the NAMI originals?
Surgeon- I bought them at a game store, so I'm sure they're nothing special.
how did you make the little cell phone?
Love the Mum (don't know why I think it's a Mum, maybe because of the small waist *g*) with the child in her arms. It's so full of emotion.Great work!Greetings from Germany,Tanja:-)
