A Brief Study of Time

“A brief study of time” is an installation measuring the present moment in imperfect increments. With a malfunctioning West German pendulum clock and several cameras, microphones and monitors in play, time is presented and amplified in imperfect and irregular measurements. 

The present does not depend on a notion of duration, because of the relativity and volatility it possesses. It exists only in the now and never begins or ends.


The beginning of the present is located in the idealized future, that immediately turns into the now, and then vanishing into the past. The Present is relative, volatile and unattainable.


This explains its non-existence.
