Can we dance with time?
Can we bend it, stretch it, or even stop the march of time altogether? When we think of time, most imagine a ticking clock. Our lives are organized around the clock with agendas, alarms, and deadlines. Clock time, however, is not a natural rhythm. It only became dominant some 200 years ago with the rise of large-scale industry. In factories, people had to conform to the tempo of machines. Schools were erected to teach children time discipline, so they could be efficient and docile factory workers. Time was no longer ours. We had to work for a bit of free time. Moreover, mechanical time entered our minds. We learned to see time as a scarce commodity that we can buy, save, or waste. Early Bird until 31.8.
