Historically, engravings on stones have stated laws, personal data or visualisation of certain events: attempts of manifesting time, identiy and institutionalization. Such is the Code of Hammurabi in Mesopotamia, gravestones in cemeteries or ancient sites such as Persepolis of ancient Persia. Here, 30 slides project the word NOW on a stone; each for one second, before subsequently projecting the word NOW from another slide for another second.
