About the project

The light sculptures presented are a part of the Cosmic Time series, and these are conceptually questioning the audience on how we perceive time and how we see time as a temporal experience.

 Object 1: (Time is... Time is not...) is an art installation which incorporates projection and physical computing around the Time - Cosmos relationship. The programming code runs generative drawings as a projection over the object, which displays the chronological time and asks questions about what time is and, after a minute, reveals a new controversial answer. It is a looping, repetitive and linear representation of the time with a tweak of randomness. When you try to discuss time in the context of the universe, you need the simple idea that you isolate part of the universe and call it your clock, and time evolution is only about the relationship between some parts of the universe and that thing you called your clock.

 Cosmic Time: Object 2 (Time is an illusion). It is a cosmic game with light reflections, colours and human presence and the object activates particular light changing patterns depending on the distance of the viewer. There is no connection with the clocks as we know them. The installation displays the present time as a temporal interactive experience which is deformed and warped. Do you agree that time is an illusion swirling in the infinite sky?
