Ministry of Time

‘Fast is good’ is a philosophy that modern society seems to hold dear. We’ve cemented this belief in our minds to the extent that it seems ridiculous to question. Simultaneously, there aren’t many other inventions that have impacted our existence more than time has. The Ministry of Time(MoT) questions the dynamic of a long-standing relationship we’ve shared with this construction of ours.

Through a series of experiments that play with the construct of time, the project delivers a collection of experimental time-telling devices that stimulate our human ‘sense-abilities’ of curiosity, intuition, vulnerability and tactility; experiences that urge us to be deliberate about our engagement with time. Can these experiments make us reflect on a future rhythm of living that’s more sustainable and inform how we shape our relationship with emerging technology?
