2-channel video installation, no sound

                                                                                                                                                          ”Since light waves use all of their motion to travel through space at Light Speed, they have absolutely no motion through Time. Every photon that has ever been produced exists in an ageless state.

(To us, the light seems to move through time but to the photon, time is standing still.)

The universe ages, light does not.”

Light clock (25 901 514 031 485 metres in 24 hours) starts with a single white frame – a flash of light – followed by a counter measuring how far the light will travel during the following 24 hours. The counter is updated every second, like a clock.

A meditation over time, speed, light, wideness – eternity.
