Description:
The video, which bears mythological references, reflects on the story of Penelope and Odysseus and the subjective nature of our perception of time. A simple coarse knitting constitutes the surface of the picture, on which the following inscription can be read: "There is still time" and "There is no longer time". The video is made up of two images, one of which shows the unraveling of the surface of the knitting while the other depicts its re-stitching. The hand of the person unraveling it is not visible; thereby producing the effect of an hourglass which when turned upside down is controlled by the laws of gravity.
