When you give someone your time, you are giving them a portion of your life that you’ll never get back. Your time is your life. That is why the greatest gift you can give someone is your time.
Guy Laramee - The Cloud of Unknowing (2008)
“Beat away at the cloud of unknowing…with the sharp dart of longing love.”
Adrien Majewski - Digital Effluvia (ca. 1898)
Carsten Nicolai - Syn Chron (2004)
“Syn Chron is an integral sculpture of light, sound and architecture. The translucent skin of the crystal-shaped body besides its function to define the spatial structure of the object additionally serves as an interface for a synchronized play of light and sound.
The object at the same time is a room for spatial experience, an acoustic resonance body, and a projection surface. the visitor is witness to an interplay of electronic sound – transmitted onto the surface of the crystal shape – and programmed laser beams that are visible both on the outside and the inside.
Syn Chron hereby creates an synaesthetic experience: on the level of human perception space, light and sound blend into each other to form a holistic experience.”
