The basic movement of using a trampoline is the starting point as you leave the ground. The main focus being on the infinite jumping, the experience of the game itself. To create a state of mind where you can enjoy the feeling of a weightless and timeless euphoria.

An adult’s life senses are based on memories from the past that still have an impact on the present and future. Things we haven’t finished yet, or are still in progress of being achieved, and these all create the web of the past, the present and the future.

The experience of this eternal and vibrating time can lead to frustration and anxiety, which we are all begging for an absolution from. In the space of the the eternal infinity, we find the need to change the past with the movement of the starting point, the jumping, to go back in to the past and really live it again, or change and improve upon it.

The fictional story is based on the difference between adult and childhood memories of ”time”. The time machine is uncovered accidentally in Budapest. The age and the space from where the machine comes from is unknown. The only thing we know of it’s use is from an instruction manual found in close proximity to the machine.

The memories taken during the journey of time travel has been documented through several different media devices.
With these pictures we can sense the time passing by, observed through technical differences. A form without function, that does not affect the reality itself.
