Time Machine Beta

Part site-specific sculptural installation, part performance and part relational art, Fort Worth artist Christopher Blay will present, Time Machine Beta, rare opportunity for gallery visitors to travel through time into the past, present or future. As Blay states of the experience, “The purpose of the time machine is to explore (conceptual) space/time through mechanical means, in the same way that the camera does. Images of 'subjects' taking trips through time move the experience through these manifestations of space. When the session begins, the possibilities focus on the present, contemplate the past or the zero reference of the future. In much the same way that the camera does, the time machine manipulates space/time by referencing the past present and future through typed in and dialed choices. Where would you like to go? What experiences would you like to revisit, or create? These same questions are asked by the camera and most of our choices with both machines are the same.”
