TIME UNITS

Inspiration

This idea is come from the day I spent in coffee shop. While I was waiting for my Latte, an idea crushed on me, how could I show the service quality to the other consumers?

I kept writing the sentence:

 

 " How many times would I have to repeat this sentence before my Latte is ready? "

 " How many times would I have to repeat this sentence before my Latte is ready? "

 " How many times would I have to repeat this sentence before my Latte is ready? "

 " How many times would I have to repeat this sentence before my Latte is ready? "

 " How many times would I have to repeat this sentence before my Latte is ready? "

I created a new unit of time -- a sentence. Time is visualized on the paper. People can estimate my waiting time by their own writing experience. Obviously, the time is not accurate at all. However, this also means that time can be a more privacy and intimate things to us. 

 

Looking back on our lives, we will find that everyone has their own time unit which is not match with anyone else. How soon can we master a new skill? When would our "Mr. right" show up in our lives? But we are also familiar with some suggestions like "The best time for the marriage is at the age of twenty-five." "You should have your own business at thirty" I really feel sick to all of this restrictions. I want to find way to create a privacy time unit for the people who attend my work. To show them what are their time units look like and the difference between them with the others. How to exchange the time with the audience by the means of technique, this is the problem I want to solved in my future works.
