Tsingyun zhang — Optical-Devices-as-Time-Apparatus

Time Apparatus (Course) — Winter 2021

A multiplicity of interpretations opens up as a shift in the observation paradigm legitimates and emphasizes a variety of individual experiences. For a long time, society has been structured and imagined from a monocular, patricentric perspective.
