‘Time machine’ is a 26,6 hour film, showing a woman wrapped in fabric, being slowly unwrapped. In order to avoid predictability, the movements take place at the pace of the Fibonacci sequence.
The Fibonacci range is an irregular range of figures, developed by Fibonacci in 1202. Each number from the range represents the specific minute in the film when the woman is unwrapped with one turn.
With the sequence being irregular, it is difficult to predict what happens when and therewith tempts people to come back at another moment to find out what has happened.
As the numbers go up, the distance between them gets bigger, which means a lot of movement in the first hours, less and less as time passes.
With the woman getting unwrapped, more and more fabric piles up on the other side.
All of this represents the passing of time, hence the name ‘Time Machine’.
Besides the passing of time, it represents the idea of love between man/women and how their relation has changed over the years with the liberation of women.
This is of course culturally determined. In the Western part of the world, and particularly in Scandinavia, women have acquired more and more freedom. Where men were leading in relationships with women in the past, the relations seem to have become more equal.
This film shows the above-mentioned process of liberation of women, by giving her more freedom as the fabric slowly unwraps and the man becomes more attentive and affectuous.
