I always thought Time is a very complex notion due to its subjective perception by different individuals. On the other hand, this is exactly why Time can be such a fascinating and challenging art object. Damián Ortega managed to visualise Time through five stages of valley erosion carved in clay. States of Time struck me with awe the minute I walked in Fruitmarket Gallery. It was the first time I felt I could literally see and touch time, a parallel time from what I was experiencing, a subjective yet shared viewpoint of time displayed in from of my eyes; puzzling and for some reason very familiar.
