The Speed of Light
Composed by three telegraph keys connected by steel cables, several metronome pendulums and antique monocles, “The speed of light” presents a poetic reconstruction of an apparatus designed to measure the speed of light, using an early telegraph system. It promotes a reflection about the materials and concepts involved in the transmission of information and the obsession with measuring.
