How can the experience of time be translated into an object? The project “Traces of Time” is an interplay between installation art and design. Using one of humanity’s most ancient forms of measuring time, the project depicts the passing of time through the impermanence of burning candles. Time is everywhere, stops for no one, and each of us has their own relationship to time. The viewer is invited to take a moment, to engage with time, watch it pass, unfold and disappear. Using a conceptual approach to design, the main objects of the project fade into memory and only traces remain.
