Our experience of time is not universal but derived from the specific circumstances of the Earth’s motion around the Sun. Sara Morawetz creates performances geared to the time scales of other planets. In How The Stars Stand, her performance cycle represents the length of the day on Mars, which is longer than that of Earth.
