Time is a Triangle

Time is a Triangle is a puzzle put together from fragments of time aspiring to the experience of space, time and place. The title of the work refers to the visual aspects of the works but also mathematics, with the help of which the fabric of time has been attempted to be unravelled since the times of early Egypt. The ancient Greek philosopher Pythagoras and his school constantly investigated nature and its phenomena trying to find a mathematical solution to it all. A person’s experience of time is more complex than mathematical equations, always particular and personal. Even if human beings are physically tied to time, on a conceptual level time can be surpassed.

The work consists of photographs, videos and text. Each part of the installation is a repeated attempt to depict time and our perception of it.
