If time can be perceived as multi-dimensional and relative, the image of time is always absolute and singular. It is always 02:33:54 somewhere in the world—a point in time and space. Here, the simage stands for the emerging present. A clock image can be seen as an oxymoron and yet a clock always displays the idea of passing time. It is always set on a moment, hence together clock images can be seen as exploded time.
*A neologism that stands for the accumulation of many similar images, or typologies.
