Belinda Hager
Somewhere in Time and Space

"These pieces are visual musings on time and memories...
-our need to answer the big questions, unlock mysteries
-how our lives are so short on the continuum of time and space
-how we spend our time, how we value it
-how time can appear to move at different speeds
-how we savour our memories
-how memories are triggered - how one can be instantly transported back through time by a scent, an image, a piece of music etc
-the need to make the most of time by making what we do meaningful
-the pleasure or regret of decisions made and the randomness of what we call 'fate'.

The parts of a clock, with names like 'all or nothing' and 'escapement' can so easily be related to the complexities of our lives. It's as though we have a constant ticking in the background, reminding us of our short stay here on Earth. These items, which only function when making up a whole, are analogous of all the facets that make up our lives, as well as our place in the bigger picture - be it our planet or the universe - in which we are very small, but not insignificant, parts."
Belinda Hager, 2006
