John W. Dunne, an aeronautical engineer, philosopher, and fly-fishing lover, published An Experiment with Time in 1927, the same year Heidegger published Sein und Zeit. Dunne performed an experiment on himself, counting how many of his dreams contained premonition, and how many of them contained memories. The fact that these two numbers essentially matched had him conclude that, while asleep, all moments have to happen at once. The audio and video installation An Experiment with Time is journey through three different time cycles, their dreams and the construction of a time-dilating machine.
