Time: An Introduction and Its Importance Within Concept Design.

Absolute, true, and mathematical time, in and of itself and of its own nature, without reference to anything external, flows uniformly and by another name is called duration. Relative, apparent, and common time is any sensible and external measure (precise or imprecise) of duration by means of motion; such as a measure—for example, an hour, a day, a month, a year—is commonly used instead of true time.  — Sir Isaac Newton

I am going to break this post down into three sections:

  • Definition of Time
  • Time and Timelines
  • Time in Space

Definition of Time:


Time and Timelines:

Upon my investigations into time and its timeline, I discovered these videos on YouTube. I found the breakdown of knowledge resourceful as it gave my brain time to process the information. With this new information in mind, it will further enable my understanding of time and will therefore inspire my concept design for BAMS.

The importance of understanding time and timeline is crucial to the development of my design, as my concept is related to time.

Time in Space:

I have discovered that I observe information more efficiently when it is broken down or thoroughly explained in videos. With this in mind, I am going to use YouTube videos to demonstrate my investigations into time in space. Space and time are fused together in what is known as ‘four dimensional structure; space time’.
