A Storm is Blowing: temporary Timekeeper installation by artist-curator Cathy Haynes


What does time look like? From an18th-century parent of Facebook's timeline to an ancient Egyptian game of life, A Storm is Blowing is an improvised 3D diagram questioning the idea of time. Created by artist-curator Cathy Haynes in response to discussions with time experts and members of the public, the installation features 35 historical pictures and models of time including a miniature trapeze act, the future figured as a many horned-goat, a 5-metre chart of history as a stream, and an astronomical wormhole. Find out more about the history of understanding time and explore how we experience and represent time today.
