Looking at some early 20th century photos at the Ringling Museum in Sarasota. Sometimes I would look at a photo from 1930 and see the 1950's part of it. Other times I looked at an early 20th century photo and I could see the 19th century part of it. Every time, I saw, is an overlap of many times and you could see that in these early photos particularly. The world was as yet unaware of photography and had not yet prepared its face. No, it's not that time is so subjective. it's that subjectivity has so much to do with time. With every discovery we make about time, we expand what it is. Time is changing us- but it is also changinng with us. Changes are isomorphic between our experience of time and what it is objectively.(11/27/99; - for Murat: 3/1/03-)
