Isabel Berglund’s Spinning Time Machine

“‘Spinning Time Machine’ is a hand-made hybrid: part industrial machine, part traditional spinning wheel and part time machine, complete with cogwheels reminiscent of a mechanical clockwork. The machine spins visible time in string/yarn. Traditionally a time-consuming process, spinning here takes on a new dimension by producing a bright, visible representation of time. Although the soft, tactile piece does not actually move, it nevertheless generates a sense of motion and progression. Because all the components of the piece, from the string to the interior ‘mechanical’ structure, appear in the same mint-green colour, they appear to have been cut from the same material – perhaps the very fabric of time?” via Mindcraft Exhibition
