standard of space-time

January 26, 2011 § Leave a comment

standard of space-time (prototype), 2008 ; paper roll, print on adhesive ; 3.8 x 280 cm

This time, I addressed the size of the images recorded by the video camera,
whose width to height ratio was 4:3.
To give the visual equivalent of a millisecond,
I defined the width of an image as 2,8 cm,
and put the 25 images on a band of paper
leaving a gap of the same width for each missing millisecond.
I thus obtained a band 28 meters long representing one second,
creating a standard of space-time.

I also made a case for this space-time standard
using the proportions of the screen (4:3 and 16:9).

bing-bang, 2009 ; photogram ; 24 x 30 cm

In 90 seconds the light travels more than 5 billion times 5 meters.
Here, it created a black point on the photo paper.

big-bang(dispositif)

Ex. big-bang

 1. Prepare a photo paper and a laser measurer in a dark room.

2. Define a distance between the photo paper on the wall and the laser measurer.

     (For example 5 meters)

3. Leave the laser beam of the device on for a while.

     (For example 90 seconds)

4. Calculate how many times the laser beam crosses the space of 5 meters

     between the device and the photo paper during the 90 seconds.

     Given that the light travels two hundred and ninety-nine million seven hundred

     ninety-two thousand four hundred and fifty eight meters per second,

the equation is :

                      x = ( 90(sec) * 299 792 458(m/sec) ) / 5(m)
