Petter Solberg : Timer

TIMER emulates a digital clock where the digits are replaced by words. The words change according to a clock’s stable pace, but its function is compromised as there is no telling where in time we are. Are we moving towards a point in time, or away from it? The hour slots provide an overarching theme, usually consisting of a vague or abstract term like ‘freedom’. The minute slot provides the TIMER’s subtheme, leaving the Second slot to provide a seemingly random stream of words to challenge the direction of the theme, constantly shifting between the serious and the silly, the simple and the complex. A series of animation-based video loops are playing simultaneously on different screens, functioning as various abstract reflections of time.
