A Philosophy of Time Travel

Edgar Arceneaux , Vincent Johnson , Olga Koumoundouros , Rodney McMillian , Matthew Sloly

A Philosophy of Time Travel is a collaborative sculptural installation designed for the Studio Museum of Harlem. Edgar Arceneaux, Vincent Johnson, Olga Koumoundouros, Matthew Sloly and Rodney McMillian created a site that convincingly simulated the consequences of what would happen if Constantin Brancusi’s sculpture Endless Column were to suddenly and inexplicably come crashing through the museum’s roof. Poetic, humorous, and ambitious, the project references such diverse sources as the music of the composer and pop artist, Sun Ra, and the architecture of Egyptian pyramids.
