Tiffany Sia

Weird Time & SEA–SHIPPING–SUN

Artist Tiffany Sia presents a response to Yuri Pattison’s solo exhibition the engine. Weird Times is a chapbook by Tiffany Sia and Yuri Pattison on time-telling and hegemony. Featuring writing by Sia and images selected by Pattison, it is a brief history on the development of time-keeping technologies. While SEA – SHIPPING – SUN, a meditation on maritime trade routes, is a short film directed by Sia and Pattison shot over the span of two years to render a simulated duration of a day, beginning at twilight and closing at sunset. The film is set against shipping forecasts from archival BBC Radio 4 broadcasts.
