“The division of time into past, present and future is an illusion”
Brighton is a busy city but even through the chaos of the crowds, there’s a couple of individuals who remain still and immersed in their own world to not notice the movement around them. Every moment that one lives becomes a memory, either a forgotten or permanent one. The end goal of term 1 was to create a device that can be used by the public and record memories.
The device created was a bus shelter that had the ability to record memories both permanently and temporarily. It features wind sails to record wind speeds, a trough to capture rain water and the seats temporarily record the movement of people who use the shelter.
Term 2 focussed on transforming an abandoned building on Western Road, Brighton into a project that focuses on different ways time can be respected, whether it is through small objects such as a watch or a timeless piece of architecture. The resident is a physicist who specialises in time and watches. The building will be their place to live and work where they can give conferences to the public and be present.
