The installation highlights the small parts of interaction like the ones found in everyday life. The Moss Clock is only allowed to tick, when an animal walks by, a hand moves over it, or when a bird passes the moss. Any encounter with a living being sets the Moss Clock to its next phase. Through this interaction, time elapses. During the exhibition, the clock itself is growing, expanding and moldering.
Time Inventors’ Kabinet [TIK] is a collaborative experiment with time. For the last three years, a series of artists and thinkers have made an attempt to devise the future of an alternative and ecological time. This transdisciplinary project focuses on non-linearity and parallelism. All kinds of environmental information; be it a city, a field or beehive, can be transformed into sound and vision. Wind time maintains a distributed network that connects gardens in rural areas and cities, bringing them together in non-conventional relational databases, forming one long open green that has its own notion of time.
We are happy to invite you to the end of our 3-year long artistic program “Time Inventors’ Kabinet [TIK]“, an international project in which 3 main organizations, many small ones, and more than 20 media artists worked together around time and ecology. The festival brings a collection of works and ideas that have been explored in a rare long-term and very collaborative project.
