Boží mlýny - Pavel Korbička

The kinetic site-specific installation forms a space-time triangle composed of three light arms in symbolic national colours, which are placed on the tops of the chimneys. Each of them rotates at a different speed. The red arm rotates like the hand for seconds, the second blue arm symbolises the torque of the minute hand, and the white arm corresponds to the movement of the hour hand. Similarly, just as physical space is grasped through walking, which is often accompanied by a change of viewpoint that helps one to orient oneself and contextually grasp a given place on a larger scale, the temporal orientation in the imaginary triangle makes sense only as a result of the sum of this three light-visual information.
