The indefinite continued progress of existence and events (that occur in apparently irreversible succession) was realized with a help of a prisoner. A layer of dust is placed on sheet of paper hanging in a plexiglass box. The project emerged from a collaboration with an elderly woman prisoner in a prison in the Czech Republic and as a reaction to her story. She said she measures time by the amount of dust on her table. Then she sent the accual dust from prison collected over a several weeks period. The relic-like box shifts in minimalist way the proof of time passing from prison, a place of deep self-reflection and completely different notion of space and time.
