We plan to pair light and auditory cues [energy waves] - expressed via a logarithmic demarcation [our created "time" is divided twice as fast as the original time period's "half-life" is exceeded, and so on] to expand and deepen our understanding of human perception.
Our basic premise is to create a [science-fictive] speculative work to help synthesize a nonverbal understanding of the difference between human time-scale and linguistic/culturally based time perception and TIME AS IT REALLY IS. How are these things different? Can we sense that? Can we articulate that via immersive, interactive experience [perhaps analogous to the way a film manipulates time-perspective]? How?
If dominant language or culture did not dictate our perception of time would we make different decisions as a species?
Does our cultural understanding of time [you are born and told you will die within a certain span of time] have a large role to play in our arrival at the Anthropocene?
Does an astrophysicist [or a neurologist, or an anthrologist, or linguist] understand time differently because of their knowledge base?
What are we told about time through our language and our culture?
What kinds of decisions do we make based on these 'facts' about time?
As we get older, we understand what a minute "feels" like on a factorial level. I have been alive for over 15 million minutes. I have experienced what a minute feels like millions of time by now.
