Dimensions Variable is performed by arranging and activating given “units of time.” Using the performers’ bodies and the space as a medium, it explores the dimensionality and the malleability of time. Dimensions Variable: To Transcribe Time is a documentation of the work in an unspecific tense, as well as a score for its future realizations. The publication consists of a set of instructions that define “units of time”; examples of time-scales formed by the different arrangements of the units of time; and a supplementary text by the curator Haeju Kim, who muses on the time and the measurement.
