Our Time is a large-scale installation by United Visual Artists investigating the subjective experience of the passing of time. How long is a moment? At what rate does time actually pass? The work joins a series of kinetic sculptures that began with Momentum (2013), an installation designed as a “spatial instrument” that reveals the relationship between expectation and perception in physical space.
Our Time materialises a physical environment where pendulums swing at a pace unhindered by the laws of nature and where no single time measurement applies. The installation combines movement, light and sound in a multi-sensory, multi-dimensional space the visitor can enter. Pendulums swing, each to their own rhythm, as time flows through the grid. With light tracing the path and sound its echo, the passing of time becomes almost palpable.
