Aims and Scope
The transformation of society from an agrarian to an industrial, and finally an urbanized way of living and working has created a fundamental change in our understanding of time: more and more this is determined by a 24/7 mentality, which is demanded for 24 hours on 7 days of the week.
The move from natural time – via the mechanical clock – to the digital age leads to a fragmentation of time that deeply affects our daily biological and social rhythm.
Focusing on objects in our designed environment, this book investigates potential risks such as that arising from a new perception of time – by exploring the concept of uchronia, a term derived from the Greek u-topos and meaning "no time" or "non-time".
