PMCE: Daniele Ghisi, “An Experiment With Time.”

John W. Dunne, an aeronautical engineer, philosopher and fishing lover, published "An Experiment with Time" in 1927, the same year as Heidegger's "Sein und Zeit." Dunne performed an experiment on himself, counting how many of his dreams contained premonitions and how many of them contained memories. The fact that these two numbers essentially matched made him conclude that, while he slept, all the moments should happen at the same time. The audio and video installation An Experiment with Time is a journey through three different time cycles, their dreams and the construction of a time dilating machine.
