This is time:
From 06/01/23 to 06/11/23
This is space:
In Florence Street School in Glasgow, Scotland (55.85135 N, 4.24660 W)
This is my time and space:
Here and for this period of time I worked on a drawing about Galileo’s planets. Venus, Jupiter, the Moon and the Sun in relation to Earth, to Scotland, to Glasgow, to Florence Street, to me.
This is how I perform in my time and space:
On top of the drawing, 4 sculptures were installed, one for each of the planets. They were made with found and produced objects such as scents, herbs, sounds and animals. Each was activated during the day and hour of the planet they corresponded to.
If the how and why of these objects is of your interest, you will find the information further on in this page. Please click on each planet.
This is when my time becomes my space:
In the drawing, every day I located the new position of the planets, the phases of the moon, and I wrote a journal about the weather that I experienced daily.
This is where I play with my time and space:
The journal was used as a way to become conscious of what had happened each day.
It was an attempt to memorize from the macro to the micro, everything that happened during this period of time.
This is when I understand my time and space:
While memorizing I would also go back to other times and spaces where I felt the same weather conditions and I would try to understand how I ended up in this precise moment.
This is where I investigate my time and space:
So many doubts would arise from those memories, what would have happened if the slightest thing had been different. Is it ever sunny on the moon? Why can we sometimes see the sun and the moon at the same time in different parts of the sky? I now know the answers. I looked for them.
This is when I repeat my time and space:
I redrew the orbits of the planets each time in order to find their momentary position. I reread where I had left the journal the day before to be able to continue. I would remember each time in a different way. There was, there is, and there will be a difference in repetition.
This is where I displace my time and space:
This cycle with different times and different spaces is all stored in the cloud and there it’s all happening at the same time. Once you press play, it will start all over again, the past turns into the present and the future.This is no time, no space:
