“Time is a Dimension” by Fong Qi Wei

Photos are often referred to as life’s moments frozen in time. While Singapore-based photographer Fong Qi Wei loves photography as a medium, he wondered whether it would be possible to combine the permanence of photos and the movement of time as recorded by video cameras.

In Time is a Dimension, Fong setup his tripod in places around Singapore and took series of photos for a period of two and fours hours, mostly of sunrises and sunsets for a varied colour range. He then combined the images into a single, layered image.

The basic structure of a landscape is present in every piece. But each panel or concentric layer shows a different slice of time, which is related to the adjacent panel/layer. The transition from daytime to night is gradual and noticeable in every piece, but would not be something you expect to see in a still image.

Minutuner – A New Generation Clock Design

Minutuner is a alarm clock concept by Antrepo Design Industry that sees the passing of time as a linear flow, much like a progress bar on a media player. The minimalistic design shows the hour boldly on the left hand side and the minutes are shown by a line indicator that travels down the bar. Five colour options are planned (red, yellow, blue, orange or green) and Antrepo are looking for partners to help with production.
