In 2180, a machine is donated to the Impossible Institute of Decentering Humanity. It allows the user to experience time in the way rocks and ice do. Two scientists have been tasked with mastering the machines and conveying their new understandings to the public.
The installation takes the form of a laboratory. It appears to be an active working environment, as if the scientists have just left the room. Traces of them remain: two empty coffee mugs, two lab coats hung up to wait. In their absence, their thoughts and worries about the project remain imprinted on the space, possessing it as a series of recorded dialogues.
