One of the great things about grad school is that you’re given the opportunity to step back and explore the bigger things that influence our experiences and interactions in the world. In my Interface/Interaction Design class, we’re creating interfaces/devices for timekeeping. We’re in the early stages, so I’ve been thinking a lot about different aspects of time, looking around for inspiration and such. A favorite book of mine that’s been a great source is Einstein’s Dreams. If you haven’t read it, you must – it’s short, poetic, and sticks around in your mind for days.
What else might inspire some reflection on how we perceive time?
