Time travel: Time dilation: A year of airtravel

Buzzo, Daniel



This beautiful, full colour 48 page photoessay investigates the visible, experiential effects of Time Dilation, as described by Einstein's theory of special relativity - arguably the most personal form of Time Travel. It is illustrated from a personal, phenomenological perspective, and accompanies a written paper, the full text of which is also included in this edition. It recalls the famous Hafele-Keating time experiment of October 1971 and tracks 12 months of air travel and illustrates the physics and mathematics behind the theory and actuality of Time Dilation. With pictures shot from nearly 90 hours of airflight in a 12 month period this beautiful and intimate record contrasts the personal and the universal scales of of the implications of Einstein's work and of the everyday reality of timetravel.
