Time is considered to be psychologically relative: our perception of it can expand and contract depending on circumstance. Unexpected experiences, like car accidents, can lengthen our perception of time—stretching it as we navigate something new. Given that time is one of our most valuable resources, I sought to create an artwork that provided viewers with the gift of time.
With that in mind, I created Thickening Time and Televising Time: a pair of installations and performances that aimed to stretch time out and slow it down. In Thickening Time, viewers navigated a complex maze of unexpected, surreal environments full of sensory experiences.
