Private Project


The ancient greeks called it Kairos (καιρός). And they distinguished it from Kronos (χρόνος). Kronos is the nervous ticking of the clock that obsesses us while we are late for an important appointment. Kairos is instead when we do not even remember the clock, when the canonical definitions of space and time change. Kairos is the time that flies, it is the time marked by the inner metronome that everyone carries inside, what makes us identify the moments as opportune, propitious and makes them consequently necessary, useful, unrepeatable and ultimately magical. Magic time is suspended and has no consistency. Where there is love there is Kairos. And although Eros is not always a positive force and often reveals its destructive nature, it is a safe switch to put the hands of our inner clock into action.
