It’s About Time: 'The Present' Is an Updated Time Piece for the 21st Century
by Scott Thrift
I’ve been living with the prototype for a year now and it has helped introduce me to a more organic sense of time and space. For the first time in my life I know the ‘shape’ and relative ‘speed’ of a year. It’s a simple shift in perspective that I think will inspire people to create, love and live more deeply. It’s an inviting reminder, that the space in our lives when time dissolves, becomes the time we live for the most.
I’d like to think that as we begin to familiarize ourselves with a deeper sensation of time, we can learn how to befriend it, not kill it. We've been hearing for years now that 2012 will be the end of time as we know it, perhaps it’s true. The way we tell the story of time, of our time, is up to no one but us.
