Time: an enticing conceptual media art piece

Albert Einstein once famously remarked that "The only reason for time is so that everything doesn't happen at once."

Thus time is everywhere but no where all at once unless time is described as a duration; In that space, time travels a distance between two points.

Jeffrey Janusheske entertains us with his analogous metaphor for the meaning of time by prying his conceptual media art piece from Einstein's theory "that time is another dimension, woven together with space to form a malleable fabric that is distorted by matter."

While the piece holds us to a period of circumspection, I don't believe anyone will ever be able to enclose the concept of time as Jeffrey attempts to do here, except to say, without his creative sound design, the time spent watching it might offer no illusion to its materialism, however illusive it remains.
