Time Mirror presents a momentary encounter in a city street, where the daily flow of commuters is unexpectedly halted. Framed in the stairway entrance to an underground railway station, the commuters wait. Passing time in different ways, they are collectively grounded by their experience of pure duration.
Repeated with variations and interventions that are hardly noticeable, this fleeting encounter reveals a scene of cinematic consciousness. In each sequence, a glint of light casts across the crowd—reflecting our own act of viewing—suggesting numerous temporalities unfolding and intersecting.
