The perception of time plays a fundamental role in acoustics. This project plays between time and sound in its contemplative and ephemeral aspect. The hourglass was built without the lower cone; it lets porcelain sand flow through but cannot be inverted. It produces a “new” sound of the friction between the plastic cone and the porcelain sand, its rhythm spreading throughout the space over time.
