Timelines by Ujjwal Agarwal (KALA)
Time, as a concept, has been explored by scientists, philosophers and some of the greatest thinkers to have ever lived. Dating back to 2650 BC when ancient Egyptians explored time as a resource limited to duration of life, and moving on to the Vedas tracking the cycles of creation and destruction, or when the Incas believed space and time as a single concept. Even for modern day scientists time continues to be a constant exploration as an idea, philosophy, and scientific unit.
More importantly, time served (and continues to serve) as a way to document life itself. Events, movements, periods, the past, present, and future all stem from the idea of sequence, and in turn create a timeline for humankind.
With his debut solo exhibition, Ujjwal Agarwal interprets and visualises time and its movement through the medium of a custom-coded computer algorithm furthering a centuries old conversation on the construct of time itself. Timelines can be classified as a singular creation but its constantly evolving nature raises the impact of time on humankind. It is a constant, yet at the same time, we don't know what it holds in store for us.
