For the Matter in Time exhibition of Dutch Invertuals in 2010, Meijer made three so-called Relativitijdsmeters: special clocks rendered in medieval oak, glass tubes, wheels, and weights. “We don’t experience time as an equal passing event,” she says. “Sometimes, time appears to pass slower or faster. Since time seems to rule over us nowadays, I designed three objects that mark off a certain period of time not in hours or minutes, but in volume, weight, and temperature. The pieces keep your attention, and before you know it, it’s much later than you would expect.”
