‘Time Travel’ enables people to explore hidden worlds in playful, speculative and poetic manners. Based on the visualization of our daily travel experiences, it reveals distortion and absurdity of the space and time that we experience every day though people's stories of traveling.
‘Time Travel’ is the culmination of consecutive experiments of ‘Discoveries in Displacement’. It demonstrates streaming numbers and words, aesthetic imagination, and collapse and absurdity in contemporary space and time. In addition, it concentrates on using the language of visualization, as do all the projects in ‘Discoveries in Displacement,’ but ‘Time Travel’ the most integrated with story telling and metaphor. It demonstrates variable time flow and links that experience to specific itineraries and individuals’ journeys.
‘Discoveries in Displacement’ challenges the traditional notion of space and time
by visualizing what is always there and changing one’s perspective of it.
‘Time Travel’ is an interactive piece that builds on the familiar experience of Internet travel booking systems. By twisting the conventional in a whimsical way, ‘Time Travel’ enables people to explore worlds in playful, speculative and poetic manners. Like all of Discoveries in Displacement, It is not science, but appropriates some aspects of science and science fiction, and then re-presents the familiar in unfamiliar ways, displacing it, re-imagining it. This body of work posits that the real and the imaginary can and do co-exist in very interesting ways.
