The Perception of Time
This was a collaborative project with Ben Borst, Will Durant and Harry Kitchin for an international competition brief set by DesignPreis Halle called 'Time'.
"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
Using this quote as inspiration, we constructed an installation that explored how our perception of time speeds up as we grow older. 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.
