In ‘instances of suspended time’, I present sensorial artworks based in the Japanese notion of ma. The works were created in three different moments when time and space seemed somehow suspended. Together, they form a transversal line that connects to the different sociopolitical contexts in which they were conceived, and embody the specific relation to the media in which they are presented.
