Time Has No Image


Past, present, future. Always present, never grasped or contained. Sleeping, waking, dreams, memories. What is the reality of time? This videotape presents musings in the first person on the nature and experience of time. What are the ways in which we construct and imagine time? Can we imagine time without distorting it?
The imagery is presented as live video, rescanned video and computer graphics: clocks, a metronome, dissolving sugar cubes, passing through bedrooms and hallways, a bathroom towel.
