Einstein's Dreams is a series of experiments, exhibitions about temporality: NOT “time” as an abstraction but the lived experience of change, dynamic, rhythm. of temporal texture (if that make sense).
Einstein's Dreams as a research stream dates back to about 2010 when choreographer/filmmaker Michael Montanaro and I discovered common inspiration in Alan Lightman’s novel. The Topological Media Lab has mounted a series of installation-experiments over the past few years, most notably a set of Hexagram blackbox experiments in 2013, and a set of installations / actions in U Chicago’s Play Symposium .
There are rich background notes to this creation-research stream:
I propose we post emails about Einsteins Dreams to firstname.lastname@example.org
Please post more general or more theoretical and technical notes and links about textural approaches to temporal experience, (change, dynamic, rhythm, etc.) to email@example.com
David — or Ed or Katie — can you flesh out the notes from our jam session? I may not be able to do this while the memory is hot.
Time frame 2015 (- 2016)
