The Paradox of Time

„Time flies by“ or „time seems to stand still“ – everyone knows from personal experience what this means, perhaps even remembers the last situation to which these statements apply. It is also clear that in reality time does not pass faster or slower, but it often deviates from our perception.

 

This is precisely where „The Paradox of Time“ opens up. Two opposing perspectives of time that collide: Time from our subjective perception and time as an objective-physical quantity. Five paradoxes resulting from this impact are visualized in this master thesis.

 

The subjective part of a paradox is staged in a fragile, unstructured and influenceable way, while the objective part reveals an order, often involving forms and patterns of movement of time-representing objects of reality.
