Yebisu International Festival for Art & Alternative Visions 2020

The Imagination of Time

  • Visual Art / Media Art ,
  • Exhibition / Screening

We habitually think of time moving uniformly in one direction, like seconds ticked off by a clock. If we ask, however, “What is time?”, there is no easy answer. Since time is invisible, we use imaging to grasp the present moment. Imaging also connects the past, present and future, making it seem that we can travel freely back and forth through time. In this, the Yebis International Festival for Art & Alternative Visions 2020, we use art and imaging to consider the question of what time itself is, thereby exploring the essential qualities of imaging and examining the present moment.
