Despite the auspicious change that the new millennium will soon mark on the
pages of our calendars, each of us daily observes the
enigmatic nature of time. Time flies, expands, contracts, escapes and
alludes us, depending upon our vantagepoint at any given moment. Without
even realizing it perhaps, some of those same commonplace words and phrases
that we use to describe time are also used by scientists to define the
concepts of Einsteins theory of relativity and quantum physics.
Mathematician/physicist Brian Greene, author of the best-seller, The Elegant
Universe, and our morning keynote, will talk about some of the essential
insights on time from relativity and quantum mechanics on a non-technical
level. His digital media presentation is reputed to knock the socks off
his students at Columbia University bring a highly complex subject into
visible form. Equally inspiring will be the scope, depth, and passion that
artist, Agnes Denes' brings to her creation of various types of
time-capsules from as early as the 1960's to her recent global environmental
works that will be protected for the next 100 years. From the ancient wisdom
of The I Ching; to recent sociological observations; future predictions by
the noted science fiction novelist, Greg Benford; and a proposal for the
adoption of Universal/ Internet Time by Swatch Group (the Swiss
watch-makers), this investigation promises to be a memorable journey into
the future of time.
FUTURE TIME, is co-produced by Art & Science Collaborations, Inc. (ASCI),
and the Chinese Information and Culture Center and Taipei Gallery, New York.
It is featured in conjunction with the gallery's opening of their TIME
MIGRATION exhibition from Dec. 3 - Jan.21, 2000.
