What time do you have?
Exercises on the conventionality of the time, conducted during the Isia Urbino / Werkplaats Typografie Summer School 2011 on the theme ‘Time and the preservation of time’. The clock time, the time by which you measure the everyday life, and an arbitrary time that varies from person to person.
Four exercises are carried out with the help of alarms present on common phones. Alarms set at the same time for all phones ring at different times with different tones, volumes, frequencies and movements. The spontaneous asynchrony of watches becomes a tool for the generation of unexpected sequences.
