"With so much to do in one day, it seems we never have enough time. So when, in Through The Looking Glass, Alice must go back in time time to save the Mad Hatter, we instantly identify. We’re all of us, always, looking for ways to “reverse” time, or at least to stop it in its tracks for a while. And new research suggests this might actually be possible.
They key to stopping time in its tracks is thinking back to a moment
when it felt as if your life stood still. Moments when time seemed to
freeze – maybe it was the second you first saw your newborn child, or
when knew you were falling in love.
This happens because you have experienced a moment of awe. Awe implies a
sense of vastness – as if what you are experiencing is bigger or more
important than you are. In comparison to other states of mind, being
awestruck makes us more aware of everything that is happening around us."
“Always in search of curious objects, broken toys, bits of things and traces of stories, Adriana Peliano stitches together desires, monsters and fairy tales. Her collages and metamorphic assemblages are magical and multiple inventories, where logic is reinvented with new meanings and narratives, creating language games and dream labyrinths. Everything is transformed to tell new stories that dislocate our way of seeing, inviting the marvellous to visit our world.”
