0.004 Hz

Tao G. Vrhovec Sambolec


The publication is a part of the installation 0.004 Hz which examines an event that for several months in 2018 almost imperceptibly affected everyday life in an area of Europe comprising 25 nations, by slowing down some electrical clocks for 6 minutes over the 2-month period.

The publication collects mostly found fragments that are indicative of the potential in, and are essential or tangential to this delay. Official announcements, news reports and interpretations of the incident are juxtaposed with literary, artistic, theoretical, philosophical and scientific texts. These include fragments by Karen Barad, Gertrude Stein, Marshall McLuhan, Theresa Hak Kyung Cha, Brian Massumi, Adriana Cavarero, Marcel Duchamp, Mladen Dolar and Simone de Beauvoir among others.
