About the piece:
Time is continuous, transient and constant but how we perceive time is subjective to our experiences and emotions. We notice the passage of time in retrospect “how am I already this old?” and our psychological time gets out of sync with physical time. However, time is cold and unbiased, only moving forward, with us experiencing time by experiencing change. Whether we’re running out of time or having all the time in the world; seizing time or wasting time, often we feel happiest when we don’t notice time passing at all.
