".... it takes all the running you can do, just to stay in place." - ´The Red Queen effect´
Founded in 1996, Time's Up has its principal locus in the Linz harbor
of Austria. Its mission is to investigate the ways in which people
interact with and explore their physical surroundings as a complete
context, discovering, learning and communicating as they do.
Thus our research is based upon constructing interactive situations not
unlike the normal physical world, inviting an audience into them and
encouraging their playful experientance-driven exploration of the space
and its behaviors, alone and in groups. In this research process we
use tools from the arts and design, mathematics, science and technology
as well as sociology and cultural studies.
Our goals are to collaboratively investigate the world and its options
with a general public, communicating and discussing these discoveries
through workshops, publications, teaching and symposia.
