Time is a memory bank…

The past, present, and future are encoded in time. Art can be used as a tool to decipher time. Break the code and consciousness will expand. When consciousness expands, freedom expands. The philosophical underpinning of jazz is the expansion of freedom. We have entered third-stage modernism, which is a global aesthetic based on otherness. Like jazz, third-stage modernism insists on the expansion of freedom. Experimentation is the key. I believe that there are sounds we have not heard. I believe that there are colors we have not seen. And I believe that there are feelings yet to be felt. 

-Jack Whitten, excerpt from Five Lines Four Spaces
