Ieri ricordato domani, 2016

Full HD, 00:01:00

“Ieri ricordato domani” (yesterday remembered tomorrow) is a shot of a clock moving between yesterday and tomorrow. The swiss train clock looses its function to record time. The idea of day is so reduced to the arbitrary length of one minute and a circular, repetitive movement. It becomes abstract and evanescent as any recollection.

Duration, time’s own essence, disappears in our memory. Without recording the timestamp of an event, the length of any action becomes malleable by our mind. Any event is reduced to a story, some images or feeling, and it is deprived of any temporal meaning.
