Paul Kaptein’s works are deliberations on time. This work considers two strategies for disrupting the flow of temporal perception. The first can be seen as a mental process, as a way of sitting outside time, while the second refers to the kind of glitches encountered when pausing or stretching tape based media, as a method of controlling time. By sampling from various cultural and temporal trajectories, Kaptein opens up new ways to consider the present.
