'The Book of Days' asks questions about time and origin, and about
living now in this time. 'The Book of Days' asks questions about time and origin, and about
living now in this time. The sense of history is around us but we can't
see it close enough;
the world is full of places we haven't visited, cultures we haven't
met but which we have learned from schools, books and media. This is
richness but also a loss; when nearly everything is somewhat available,
the endless information flow turns out to be just scratches on the
Knowledge and information are changing into confusion:
who am I?
where am I?
where do I belong?
do I even need to know?
My technical approach in making 'the Book of Times' was to avoid the
latest technology. At times it seems to me that too much is focused in
the most newest inventions and technology. It is not a bad thing at all
- but sometimes it leaves you the feeling that the work itself becomes
so depended on technology that when you leave the hottest and newest
things out, there will be nothing left. That's why I decided to make
this work in different way: I used nearly plain html3.2 with just few
old java scripts. The work is based largely on visual points, middle age
imagery commented with dark visions of the future.
