Ieri ricordato domani

Ieri ricordato domani (trans: yesterday remembered tomorrow) is a single shot video of a clock moving between two temporal units: “Yesterday” and “tomorrow” become abstract parameters and as evanescent as any momento: Duration, time’s own essence, disappears in our memory. The Swiss train clock that stands for precision, punctuality and reliability loses its function and value. With it, the idea of a “day“ is reduced to the arbitrary length of one minute and a circular, repetitive movement.
