Untitled (Preconstruction of “Trace of a Time Machine”
Toposcapes, Pavelhaus, Laafeld, 7/07
"A Multiplex time machine, that could be a kind of re-construction of an artwork of the past, which could have been designed as a time machine back then, but could have been only sketched out, never realized, an ephemeral idea.This could have happened in a historical context that could have disappeared by now, or been made disappearing and its history along it, leaving only few traces. (...) But then, if you travel back in time you could have altered the past and produce one more paradox, so maybe that first time machine could have never existed before you travelled back with its own p/reconstruction.

The Serbo–Croatian quote says “An artist who cannot travel in time is no artist”. The geometrical figure is a 2-dimensional projection of a 4d–cube.
