‚Calatorie In Timpul Capitalului‘ is the title of an exhibition in Bucharest. Translated as ‚Capital’s Time Machine‘ the exhibition showed national and international artists projects on turbo-capitalism, the arts and the presence of time.
The video shows a person in a room. Sitting or lying, he reads dates – days, weeks, months and years – from his smartphone. The simple and monotone reading challenges watching it; days, weeks, months and years shrink to minutes. Starting at the opening day of the exhibition, „Saturday, 20th of October 2018“ reading focus decreases and speech errors occur in the course of the video. The linear time structure gets lost; the video fades out at 1:52:21min.
Watching the 360-degree video with a VR headset, the beholder can look around in the room, stretch the video and distort the view.
