Parts and wholes in the history of now
This work was a result of my process with my conceptual piece: Registered times on all digital watches and clocks with numbers I looked at between 11.44.22 AM (07/31 1999) and 1.44 AM (10/05 2000) and the enforcement of power in the WTC catastrophe and the predictable results from it.
The more or less confusing setup was made in three large elements and ten connecting parts. Episodes was interlinked with formal aspects and descriptions in the manual. The attitude was playful and provocating in how the relation between the parts was oriented in the manual. It was using a descriptive language, but ends up in the visitor’s choice of relevance.
The manual of an explanation
This text was written in about the same manner as in my piece “Party for the rabbit”. Describing carefully every item in the setup and making conncetions. The motivation is to try for the visitor to come closer to the pretty abstract topics that one usually tries to glance through since they are of a quite non-physical character.
