What if we could see the passage of time? This image came from an investigation in visualizing the passage of time. It is a collection of overlapping photographs of a simple sundial. Each hour is marked by a shadow projected from the stone, starting at 6AM and ending at 6PM. The result is a surprisingly beautiful map of lapsed time. The image also teaches us that nature has its own ideas about design.
