Time, as the title suggests, is the main character of Tiempo diámetro. This brief and unusual phrase embodies the content of the text in an intuitive way rather than in a conceptual one. The sole word diameter brings a precise image to our mind: the circumference, the line that crosses it and, why not, even if it’s not explicitly mentioned, the dot that marks the radius. This simple yet complex image, and its ambiguous set of symbols, are a good point of reference, as I see it, to portray the various manifestations of time, which I approach as a human concept, experience and condition, and also as a linear, cyclical and static phenomenon.
