My intervention process journey

Today during our class, we were encouraged to draw or project journey… by doing it I notice I was drawing all my preliminary intervention ideas based on my own research and some classmate suggestions.

But the most special thing by doing this drawing was to identify that for balance our time, we are crossing the bridge in a constant swing…. like a pendle…

Or like a real swing.!.. So I remind this popular comic in Latinamerica, Mafalda from Quino that says when people stop swinging… or put the feet on the earth… funny things go off.

I thought too about metronome, as another Pendle metaphor

And the classic Pendle watch as inspiration for possible interventions

Gravitational waves and work-life balance?

I discovered almost by mistake the following book in the Foyle Library: “The order of time” written by a Quantic Physics!

The book was launched this year and is changing my life, because is a balance between philosophy and physics of Time. I never though my project will have a strong connection with science, so even though Einstein discovered long time ago: “present don’t exist”, for me is a really new finding that could help me to understand better that “Time is not made of things, time is made of events” and currently life and work are events that are happening paralelly.

That’s why the concept or image of gravitational waves will be helpful to continue thinking in my intervention ideas

 

 

 

About question process

(Post wrote during class exercise)

Thanks to class mentors I have improved my question a couple of times:

  • First I was thinking to use artificial intelligence to help corporate workers to create a frontier between work and life, but I understood that I was asking with the answer and being in my comfort zone that was digital design.
  • Then,  by mapping my keywords and researching about time, I discovered life and work are not separated and more than a frontier people need to know how to surf in those two worlds. So I thought creating a tangible representation of time will help them. But then I fail again because I ask if a physical representation of time in a balance will help…. and again that´s an answer.
  • Now by reading about the physical aspects of time, specifically from physics and science, I discovered that what I want is to discover or (re)define a new metric of time. Since historically the time was visible tangible: sand watch, water watch or clepsidra.

 

Bibliography fragments

One of my first mistakes was not to write down the Title of this oversized and heavy book from the CSM Library… I just remind the date 1965…
