I created this clock to explore the idea of time as a crystal. A very rudimentary description of a time crystal is a 4-dimensional theoretical model in physics. One’s experience of a crystal changes based on one’s orientation in relation to the crystal as well as in a larger context, such as the time of day, which all affect how the crystal’s reflected and transmitted light will appear. Similarly, one’s experience of time changes based on one’s relation to time and one’s larger context; age, history, future plans, perspective, etc. all affect how time is perceived.
How much of my research reflects more intrinsic elements of time and how much is influenced by who I am and my current context?
