Uchronia: Designing Time

In stock (1000 items available)
The transformation of society from an agrarian to an industrial, and finally an urbanised way of living and working has created a fundamental change in our understanding of time: a 24/7 mentality. The move from natural time to the digital age leads to a fragmentation of time that deeply affects our daily biological and social rhythm. Uchronia is a way of questioning, speculating on and designing new kinds of temporal systems that are more about being in tune than on time.
