Time, Time Studio

Studio 26.01.16

Our first assignment in the Time Studio explored the nature of time, its relationship with our senses, the passage of time and began with the question: can you tell the time?

The students were asked to close their eyes and respond to three pieces of music, each lasting 15 minutes, while they continued to write or draw their thoughts, calculating the passage of time. Here are the pieces we used:

And finally another 15 minutes of silence, where the students relied on the sounds inside their heads, in the classroom and in the corridors.

The students further their understanding of these exercises at home when they mark out the beginning, middle and end, recalling from memory moments of creation and understanding. The students iterate these ‘drawings’ and responses on six 6″ x 4″ postcards, documenting the passage of time, their relationship with time, their ability to recall and remember and question (or so I hope) the interplay of time, space and memory.
