As we believe that time and space are inextricably connected, we commonly perceive the progression of time as motion - either by the motion of our surroundings or by our own movement in space. The interactive video installation ‘Der Cryptochron’ explores this hard-wired time-space link in our brains by breaking this connection and splitting apart our motion from the motion of our surroundings. It creates a realtime window into a non-real (spatially controlled) time.
