It seems as if time is increasingly out
of joint. We no longer experience time
as a succession or an acceleration of
events, but rather as something adrift
in a fragmented world of information
stimuli, out of the realm of chronology
and linearity. What is the impact of this
evolution on our perception patterns?
How do the different internal, natural,
social and technological rhythms relate
to each other and influence our daily
sensory perception? What is the role
and potential of cinema, together with
music, the art form most particularly
devoted to the shaping force of time?
These and other questions will be
explored through a series of contempo-
rary and historic film and video works
addressing the relation between space,
movement, technology and (our
experience of) time.
