Is time modular or linear? Can it be both?

Is time modular or linear? Can it be both?

Kathryn Cutler-MacKenzie

The Blue Hour', a sensory installation, explores the moment of transition, at a boudoir, in which the human body can be transformed and rewritten. It is sterile and cold, much like a hospital or nursing home, which are also places of bodily transition; change requires the risk/loss evoked by both of these environments. However, it is also an anachronistic installation, using a radiator to permeate Guerlain's scent 'The Blue Hour' throughout the room as the installation progresses. Hot and stuffy, floral and musky, the room creates a lingering bodily presence. It evokes the nostalgic warmth and inevitable loss of a grandmother, a time and a generation. That said, The Blue Hour also speaks of who we are and what we want to be. At The Blue Hour, a half-light between day and night, anything is possible.
