In A Really High Building Time Goes Faster


 










Deep time is essentially just a geological time span. This means that it is a long period of time defined by (big) changes. Deep time often refers to periods of time that already have passed, while it could also be a period of time that is starting now and will end in the future. It is very hard to connect with a period of time that has passed long time ago. That is why the video “In A Really High Building Time Goes Faster” has timeless elements that we recognize from our own environment, but could also take place a hundred years from now.

When you speak of deep time you could use the terminology “taking a dive into the deep”.
You can imagine how deep time works. You can spend some time in that mindspace, but you always have to get back to the surface.
It is not something we are able to fully comprehend.

What would be a beter place to watch deep time happen than in an environment where time goes faster? That is why the video takes place on the top floor of a really high building.
