Time Made Visible


The constantly changing angular position of the Earth to the sun is clearly recognizable. We do not feel the Earth’s rotation, from where we are standing, we feel our position to be static, and in this we are wrong. For we are all – even the location – located in the midst of this dynamic which in this way becomes visible.
