Abstract

Our conception of the topology of time and space shapes our relationships with ourselves and others including the other-than-human world. Despite accelerating transport systems, ease of
access to information and ubiquitous fast food, a conceived/perceived lack of time in modern Western lifestyles has become trope, with adventurous journeys seen as an escape from the everyday and the linear rhythm of the 9 to 5. The perception of being time poor contributes to a number of responses including impatience with the potential to fuel interpersonal conflict,
degrading relationships at a number of levels. At the same time the pace of life impairs the reflexivity that might promote awareness concerning our spacio-temporal conceptions and how these influence our wider relationships.
