SUM

This project illustrates a short story by David Eagleman, from his book ‘Sum’. In it he suggests that in the afterlife we would relive our lives but all activities would be done at once; eg, a two-hundred day shower, and so on. The cut-out squares in the pages represent the amount of time dedicated to each activity by area (where 1 minute is equal to 0.05mm2), so that when seen together one could get a sense of proportion of time spent. The squares are ‘empty’ in order to represent the intangible nature of time.
