“Carlo Rovelli's book, 'The Order of Time', explains the physics of 'time' with comprehensive and poetic language. Through Rovelli's visuals and metaphors I was finally able to understand concepts like, 'Time passes faster in the mountains than it does at sea level' and 'Time passes more slowly for the one who keeps moving.' My greatest fear is wasting time and I have been taught that to confront fears is to understand them. So, I decided to spend some time with Time. This series of paintings is an experiment to get closer to time. I mixed the two colors where the sky and sea meet the horizon every hour on the hour for a day. (I skipped a few early morning hours for fear of foxes and Irish ghosts.) Does an hour feel longer or slower when you are paying attention to it?” — Kristin Texeira
