Die Zeitstucke series explores the idea of human experience as the pivotal point in
our perception of time.
In this body of work user is invited not only to experience time in different ways, but to engage in its manipulation. This tampering with time occurs in a variety of manners: from unintentional loss of few seconds here, to deliberate and absolute halt of the flow for minutes there; from attentive search for meaning in the time passed to violent hurdling up and down the visible timeline; from desperate attempts to work against the relentlessness of time to the quiet acceptance of the shifting physical manifestations of it.
Each component slowly, but methodically evolves, creating a sense of continuous texture only fragmentarily experienced by the user.
Soft, organic images of human body combined with sharpness of grids and mechanics of numeric display further emphasize the tensions between the subjectivity and the science of time. Our understanding of "objective" time, however, takes place largely due to our acceptance of time measuring devices, and the recognition of these objects as nearly synonymous to the idea of time itself. In Die Zeitstucke Series the concept of time functions as such device employed here to reflect on (and quantify?) such elusive themes as memory, faith, knowledge and mortality.
