Intentional Anachronisms

Intentional anachronisms by Carling Ernstzen 

What is time?

the darkness of night dissipating to light blue and finally orange hues of dawn. 

Transition, perception , inverted and mirrored back to our sensibilities to be reinterpreted like reading a book. 

At first you are acutely aware of the paper and the ink, then the symbolic form of each letter creating a word.

That word resonates meaning imbued by your collective life experience... 

Soon you don't see the paper or ink or shapes and letters but you begin to feel, perceive, make meaning. 

That is Time.
