“Time is the dimension of decay and resistance, of dissolution and of recomposition. Time is the process of becoming other of every fragment in every other fragment, forever.”

Futurability – franco Berardi Bifo

Recognition of the hourglass as a symbol of time has survived its obsolescence as a timekeeper‭. ‬Unlike most other methods of measuring time‭, ‬the hourglass concretely represents the present as being between the past and the future‭, ‬and this has made it an enduring symbol of time itself‭. ‬The powder in hourglass consists of‭ ‬crushed cement bits chipped from the‭ ‬“Wall”‭ ‬in the West Bank mixed with sand grains‭. ‬Hourglass is handmade and produced in collaboration with a‭  ‬glass factory in Hizma‭*.‬
