Kalpa is an interactive installation that plays with human perception of time.
The project is a combination of two parts, a narrative text about the history of the mysterious creature kalpa, and an installation with kalpa captured in an old alarm clock.
The audience can feel the time goes slower while they looking into the clock, but the clock will always speed up to display the correct time while people turned away from it.
Kalpa is a project by Liangjie Xia and Li Li. It was exhibited in ITP Winter Show 2009 (Dec 20-21, 2009).
Built with: Arduino, Processing
