How long is a blink or a cup of tea? How do we set our own time?
And how can we – at times – escape the mechanical and always forward thriving setting of seconds, minutes and hours? How abstract and how concrete is time in our everyday? What is more memorable, the ring of the bell or the song of a bird? How can time become quality time? How can time become loose and open ended?
Members from the Colchester Time Bank group have discussed those questions extensively, and proposals range from time hats to new timetables based on personally defined intervals.
