‘MindTIME’ will Make You Question Your Perception of the Passage of Time #WMF16

‘MindTIME V2’ was a fun interactive sculpture made by Kritwalee Seneetantikul, seen at World Maker Faire this past weekend. Consisting of three panels of multiple spinning dials, users would initiate their spinning by touching a conductive pad on the table; the stepper motor-controlled dials would then spin for an unknown amount of time. The challenge to the user was to guess how long the dials spun. Do more dials make more time appear to go by? Do fewer dials slow down our perception of time when in fact more goes by? Users could fill out a survey card of sorts, then compare their answer/s.

The frames were really well designed and the stepper motors mounted nicely on the back:

MindTime is a series of interactive sculptures that encourage participants to explore their own perception of time. The installation consists of three sculpture sets, each running a different speed. The visitor is encouraged to concentrate on each sculpture and predict how much time has passed. This is analogous to our own lives where time passes too quickly when there are many tasks to complete but moves too slowly when we are waiting for something or seemingly have nothing to do. The experience for each visitor will vary, being either fast or slow according to the way the individual perceives time. I invite visitors to share their results in this paper and compare their different time perception experiences with each other.
