The effect on people when you discuss time with them is a somewhat stubborn righteousness. Not said negatively, just observing. We all hold the truth – our truth about what time is and how to navigate it. It became apparent that _that _exactly, was to be the project focus. The research and design is focused on the benefit of exploring and understanding the individual relationship with time. The context is a constructed family of five: mother, father, grandmother, teenage daughter and a little son – the afterthought. The understandings and uses of time vary greatly and so do the proposed designs.
