— Time Machine
The Timewriter is a mechanical instrument made to measure and register time. Using four numerical stamps it imprints time, tracing it, on paper every minute. Time is described and recorded as a continuous linear progression. In contrast, on a traditional clock, time moves in an infinite circular path at 360° a minute, 360° an hour. The future becomes present, the present becomes past, the past becomes future. Constantly replacing each other around and around the clock, the three states of time become indefinable. In a new take on time, the Timewriter creates a physical recording, revealing the accumulation of time.
