Discontinuum

Squidsoup have used their light box to produce a beautifully eloquent image of space and time.

They say: “A camera feed is passed through physical space over time, creating imagery that contains fragments from a range of times simultaneously. Unlike a 2D image taken over a long duration – which would essentially be a blur – the time is ordered in the third dimension, as if time was flowing in a particular direction.

Seen from ahead, the image is superimposed on itself, similar to its 2D counterpart, but from other angles, the flow of time through space can clearly be seen. And from behind, time slowly fades away into the distance.”

It uses the Nova machine they showed at the V&A recently.

A video of Discontinuum is available on their site but I cant seem to embed it here.
