I explore ideas around the concept of time, through the use of sculptural and installative media. I am inspired by physics and time travel, how time possesses different rates from one place to another, slowing down in relation to gravity and movement. Therefore simple changes such as travelling from one floor to another can be considered ´time travel´ because of gravity variations. Time has always a performative connotation, is associated with an action or movement. Our understanding of changes in time comes from the realization of how time used to be and the projection of how it could be. St Augustine states that time is only present, past is a memory and the future a prediction.
