Perception of Time

 

Visualising how different age groups perceive time through an installation.

Solution

 

Using liquids with different viscosity to visualise each age group in life: honey for childhood, PVA glue for adolescence and water for adulthood–all mixed with black ink. These were then poured through a maze and the speed at which they flowed communicated how each age group perceives time.

Brief

 

Design and build an installation to visualise the topic of time.

 

Woking in collaboration with Harry Kitchin, Ben Borst and Will Durant.

Insight

 

As we age, time seems to pass a lot quicker.

 

"It's strange how in childhood it feels like tomorrow won't come until the end of forever, but in adulthood it feels like the end of forever could come tomorrow" - Richelle E. Goodrich
