Ink stained verses

Rosann Ling

If the numbers on your clock were removed, what would represent your personal measurement of a single minute?

In today's society, mankind surrender to the inescapable tyranny of the clock. Every second, every minute and every hour passes with a strike of the hand - a silent dictator concealed within one's own mind.

"Ink-stained verses" is inspired by abstract philosophies of time in literature. Designed to break the boundaries of standard units of Time, it presents to the audience an alternate measurement of Time open to personal interpretation. Merge the barriers separating past, present and future, and allow the mind to wander and take you to another moment in time.
