Copper RoundTimer

A contemporary artwork reflecting the artist’s ponderances on the direction of time’s arrow. We perceive time as only moving forward, but is that an accurate conclusion? Does time flow like a river past us, or do we move through time? These are questions central to our existence. The theory of general relativity describes the world in 4 dimensions, three of which are space related as the dimensions of this sculpture: horizontal, vertical, and height. The fourth dimension, according to general relativity, is time. Einstein suggested that time is not absolute. This leaves much room for the mind of an artist to maneuver through, as is the case with Davide.

RoundTimers invite us to try to adjust them, to ascertain their means and mechanisms, their intent and direction. But without our intervention, they are essentially passive, timeless.
