Duality’s of Time; a Triptych
fan placed above a wall. The wall dividing the space in to zones.
Timezones. A black zone, a white zone. The fan blowing equal amounts
of air into both the zones. The arms of the fan as arms of a clock.
The clock tells a different time, a time lag or slipping time made
visual by the dragging along of a small kite.
clock made out of digital alarm clocks. The alarm clocks are
representing the numbers of the clock. No arms which are moving, but
the hours are moving from one clock to the other, in a counter
clockwise motion. The minutes appear to be synchronized, but in the
end they are not. Some clocks will run faster than the other. So
stretching the amount of minutes in an hour on the one side and
compressing the amount of minutes in an hour on the other side. The
clocks are connected in a way that is similar to the branching of
time; one timeline split in several branches, these branches also
split up in more.
complete the triptych there is a poster with a recent published thesis
Artist as System Engineer. The text deals with issues regarding dual
practices and interactivity in times of rapid development of (digital)
technology and how art could be functioning in the construct of
science and society.
