13 Hours at Once

Renata Graw, Graphic Design

“The only reason for time is so that everything doesn’t happen at once.” —Albert Einstein

What if we could see the passage of time? This image came from an investigation in visualizing the passage of time. It is a collection of overlapping photographs of a simple sundial. Each hour is marked by a shadow projected from the stone, starting at 6AM and ending at 6PM. The result is a surprisingly beautiful map of lapsed time. The image also teaches us that nature has its own ideas about design.
