10dence platform organizes and curates an international exhibition project presenting a contemporary vision on how an international group of artists experiences and reflects on the above mentioned concept and subject: Time Travel Dimensions from their specific personal viewpoints. An exhibition that will be on display at de Kruisruimte in the city of Eindhoven in The Netherlands from August 16 till 30 2025. Ninenteen artists from all over the world have been selected to participate within the curated Time Travel Dimensions exhibition and all of them will show selected works of their unique vision and expression based on their personal confrontation with the concept.

The subject of time travel has stimulated the imagination of people from all walks of life for centuries. It is easy to see why this topic has been examined considerably by those in the fields of physics and philosophy. Artists are not immune to the allure of the idea of traveling through time and that appeal has resulted in the creation of related movies, literature, and other forms of performing and visual arts that investigate the fascinating possibilities of transporting oneself from one point in time to another. In fiction, time travel is typically achieved through the use of a hypothetical device known as a time machine. The idea of a time machine was popularized by H. G. Wells’ 1895 novel The Time Machine. Albert Einstein postulated within the framework of his theory of relativity that light always moves at the same speed in a vacuum. From the constancy of the speed of light it follows, however, that space and time must not be absolute, but relative. A direct consequence of this is that time passes at different speeds depending on how fast objects move. Some years ago, Stephen Hawking stated that he had experimental evidence that time travel is not possible, however, in his final book “Brief Answers to the Big Questions” he also stated that the notion of time travel was a very serious question and a pretty big statement, that should serve as food for thought. According to Stephen Hawking, backward time travel is not necessarily physically impossible. Is time travel possible? Will we one day be able to build a machine to travel to the past as well as the future? In a guest post for The Conversation, researcher Peter Millington of the School of Physics and Astronomy at the University of Nottingham tried to get to the bottom of some of these questions. The speed of light plays a decisive role in time travel. Albert Einstein postulated within the framework of his theory of relativity that the speed of light is a universal constant, i.e. that light always moves at the same speed in a vacuum and independently of the observer. Stephen Hawking writes that there could be a way time travel into the past may be possible by wormholes that connect two distant places in the universe. Wormholes are a kind of tubes in space-time that make it possible to get from A to B at the speed of light. In order to stabilize such a tunnel, however, locations with a negative spatial curvature would be required. The modern theory of quantum mechanics, doesn’t exclude the existence of negative energy densities: empty space is not empty, according to quantum mechanics. And in the end of course there will always be our artistic inspiration, fantasy and imagination to interpret and skillfully demonstrate and reflect on this timeless issue.
