The installation will feature a time controlled photo exhibition. The goal is to create an experience that mirrors the life in the city where time controls you. Once a participant enters the booth, they will no longer have control over the timing and will be encouraged to follow the prompts. We hope that this experience will shed some light on the concept of time and control. The entire exhibition will only last 2-3 minutes and will require participants to think quickly. The participants will then get a token of their time captured in the moment as combination of photos which they can email to themselves on location.
