The paper that needs to be written. The trash that needs to be sorted. The guest room that needs to be repainted. The zoom meeting that you need to partake in. The dentist appointment that you need to make because something feels wrong with your left upper molar.

It's not just you who is stalling. Postponement is all around us.

Whether it is a feeling, a wish, or an activity that you or the people around you partake in, there is no denying that everyone has an urge or an instinct to forestall certain things. During this project, we stacked all of these increments of lost time and established a place of discussion and creation revolving around postponement.

Postponed Until Further Notice is a hybrid publication featuring six digital artworks that respond to notions of time, delay, and rest. The project was developed as a response to the constant postponement and cancellation of cultural events during the pandemic and presents itself as an artefact of time spent reflecting on postponement in a wider context. The project asks how postponement can create a space for reflection, experimentation, and alternative timelines.

As a non-linear roadmap, the hybrid publication shows the complexity and versatility of procrastination and encourages the reader to find their own path, all the while stumbling upon digitally hosted artworks along the way. The ownership of the publication is distributed, shared, and delayed as it is continuously being sent to new people.

We invite you to trace the lines, linger at the knots, and explore this entanglement of time we spent pondering on postponement.

The Postponed Until Further Notice-team consists of Ivana Emily Škoro, Ivy Go, Jordi Viader Guerrero, Lee McDonald, Maruša Uhan, David Quiles Guilló, Sebastián Mira, and Yoojin Lee. The project is developped during The Wrong Biennale n°5 and is made possible by the kind support of Creative Industries Fund NL.
