Through the “time is TIME” installation, Citizen let us explore the notion of “time” from a variety of angles— how the universe, earth, living creatures, mankind, life and society—are all linked to “time.” It will also exhibit various forms of “time,” that demonstrate different motions through mechanical and electronic movements.
“time is TIME” is an experimental and experiential installation which using approximately 120,000 main plates. The area exposes two primary spaces where the visitors will have a completely new time experience – they will experience time as an absolute and everything else as relative.
SPACE A: organic, random, continuous, analogue, coincident, micro, now The 60 mechanical movements on the table constantly vibrate to express the continual/perpetual flow of time.
SPACE B: systematic, geometry, discrete, digital, calculated, macro, future Electronic movements express different ideas for the notion of time that exist in the space of one second.
