TIME#03 SHIVA CLOCK
Special thanks: Jeff Feddersen
In Hindu mythology, the river of the cosmos is portrayed with the sacred image of Shiva dancing: his dance supports the coursing of the universe; it is itself the flowing of TIME.
What could be more universal and obvious than the flowing? But according to what Einstein told us according to his general theory of relativity, the equations do not have a single "time", instead, there are innumerable times. Time flows in different speeds in different heights. Physics don't describe how things evolve in time but how things evolve in their own times, and how "times" evolve relative to each other. So, if the world is really upheld by the dancing of
Shiva, there must be innumerable Shivas dancing all over the universe.
I made this Shiva clock, each clock is driven by an invisible Shiva who is rotating and dancing. The natural disordering always leads to less particular, less special; the entropy is lower and more in order in the past. Shiva - the god of distruction, as the character of "time" is even stronger here: the direction of time is destruction.
