Thoughts for the exhibition

...Il tempo fugge nonché sfugge a qualsiasi definizione--- (Margherita Hack)

La questione di cosa sia il fluire del tempo viene sottolineata dai filosofi dalla seconda metà del XIX, ma si è accentuata con la fisica moderna. Questa descrive formule che dicono del cambiamento delle cose in funzione della variabile “tempo”. Il vero problema è chiedersi cosa sia il presente - possiamo affermare che le uniche cose che esistono ora e qui sono quelle del presente: il passato non esiste, neanche il futuro. La fisica moderna rende ancora più intrigante la questione, la teoria della relatività di Einstein ha mostrato che la nozione di presente è addirittura mal definita: chiedersi se una cosa avviene proprio ora, ha significato solo per cose vicine nello spazio; il presente, come l’insieme degli eventi che accadono in questo momento nell'universo è solo una limitatezza delle nostre percezioni. In altre parole il presente, come lo concepiamo di solito, non esiste. Osservare il tempo, non g iudicarlo ma a ssorbirlo intimamente fino a non dare più importanza al s uo scorrere. Hiroshi Matsumoto non t enta una descrizione n é una trascrizione del tempo, non vuole elaborare teorie scientifiche o filosofiche; con forza porta i l fruitore a d una s emplice operazione: o sservare senza pregiudizi, s enza formare teorie, assorbire il suo corso s enza prendere appunti; lasciarsi andare ed ascoltare il suo suono pulsante, accettare il suo scorrere e gioire di questo.

...Time flies and escapes from any definition - (Margherita Hack)

The problem of the flow of time was emphasized by philosophers of the second half of t he n ineteenth century; however, it was s tudied i n greater depth by modern Physics. The l atter provides u s with f ormulas t hat s how how things change i n function of the variable "time". The real question is asking what the present is - we can affirm that only things that exist here and now are part of the present. Neither the past nor the future do exist. Modern Physics makes t he question even m ore intriguing. E instein’s Theory of Relativity shows us that even the concept of the present is not well-defined: to ask if s omething happens right now makes s ense only for things t hat a re nearby in space; the present, conceived as the set of all events happening right now in the universe is only a limitation of our perception. In other words, t he present as we conceive it does not exist. One must observe time, not judge it but absorb it intimately until he does not give importance to its flow anymore. Hiroshi Matsumoto does not attempt a description or a transcription of time; he does not want to develop scientific o r philosophical theories about it. He forcibly brings the viewer to a simple process –  to observe time without prejudice, without forming theories; to absorb its course without taking
