Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

Filmmaker Phillip Adams once said, "Of all the big questions of existence... none impacts our daily lives more than the problem of time." The notion of time has always mystified and attracted the speculation of societies and civilizations. Each major stage of our lives is delineated by a construct of time: birth, death, marriage, retirement. Deadlines rule our working days and, increasingly, our leisure activities. <br> Artist and designer Olga Ast, thanks to the contributions of approximately sixty international artists, writers, scientists, architects and filmmakers, has compiled in "Infinite Instances" an astounding compendium of studies of time.
