  Work Details  
  Pastime is part of Interval, a project in progress, where one representative from each year (between 10 and 60) repeats their age for a period in minutes equal to their age (for example, a 50 year old repeats the number 50 for 50 minutes). Pastime features pairs that rhyme (eg. twenty-seven and fifty-seven) and have a significant age gap. For the image component, the younger is slowed down to the length of the older, and the older is sped up to the length of the younger. The audio is kept as is, thus the image and sound are out of sync.
