“…our entire concept of time is dependent on an understanding of periodicity. Time is depending on night and day, the periodic rotations of the plantets, the stars, the periodic functions of our bodies and the seasons, all of these various periodic events, and without them we really have no concept of time. Time is really a very important aspect of universal structure.What I have learned is it goes very slowly.”

La Monte Young (interviewed by David Toop, Ocean of Sound -Serpent’s Tail, London 1995- p.178-179)

Formless  time
We try our best to match our life with our society, sometimes forgetting our relation to larger cycles since we are so occupied with our smaller cycles. The need for the extra large clock in this space demanded for an afterthought and polarization. Time can be seen as emptiness in its most formless non-material state. The slow movement of the digital display had a relation to its over-informative character .
