Time Collapse

Time Collapse / 2022

‘Time Collapse’ is a project revolving around nostalgia and atemporal spaces.

People look to nostalgia as a cure for the displacement, confusion, and loss of identity we experience in our fast-paced reality. This project deals with nostalgia within the cultural context of the Czech Republic. It explores nostalgia in relation to visual culture and utilizes historical artefacts to do so. The process of reworking found visual material sourced around the country and in family archives allows for new narratives to be formed and for these artefacts to be recontextualised. The project embraces the romanticized nature of nostalgia and retells a narrative that perhaps never existed. The process of collaging and combining media is used in different ways as a central methodology within the project. ‘Time Collapse’ is an investigation of atemporal spaces and sites of nostalgia, questioning the relationship between time and location.

The project has two main outcomes.  ‘Atemporal Textiles’ is a series of aprons which act as intergenerational cultural artefacts and have been printed with old photographs, postcards and illustrations on vintage fabric sourced in the south-moravian region.

‘Reflections of Home’ is a publication exploring sites of nostalgia and spaces which embody atemporality.

Overall, the project is designing a process of reconnecting with one’s collective past through tangible memories in times when folk history is being lost and in hopes to inspire people to reconnect with their own culture.
