MERU Art*Science Award III EditionSarah Sparkes: TIME YOU NEED02.10 – 29.11  2015GAMeC – Gallery d’Arte Moderna e ContemporaneaVia San Tomaso, 5324121 BergamoItalywww.gamec.itTime You Need, by Sarah Sparkes explores the potential for consciousness to time-travel within the material limits of the human body. Using the symbolism of the portal and black hole, as they are conceptualised in both science and science fiction, the film presents a montage of narratives and documentation of performances and installations, which together with sonic and visual disruptions, create a liminal experience for the spectator.
The proposition is that one may find, herein, the time one needs.
