Now Past Now (Work in Progress)

The concept of time can be understood as a highly divided space in which human-made boundaries subdivide the natural environment through regulations and laws.

Our focus lies upon the demarcation of time and space (time zones) as a human-made construction. The invisible division between time zones tend to follow the boundaries of countries and their subdivisions instead of following the longitude strictly. In some areas such as western Ireland, the division of time thus deviates from its usual route then passes around national territory.

This project uses light as a vehicle to bridge two western headlands of Ireland at midnight. The light beam strikes from one headland (0 hr) toward another over the North Atlantic Ocean (-1 hr). In a sense, it starts from today, passes through yesterday, and then returns to today again.
