CAPSULA – a project carried out by a group of students from the Design for Photography course at ISIA Urbino, followed by the lecturer and artist Armin Linke – reveals the temporal subversion that occurred during the quarantine period caused by the Covid-19 pandemic. Having lost the sequence of time usually marked by work and free time, all that remained was the transition from light to darkness.
Students took a series of photographs during lockdown, collected over a single twentyfour- hour period. The photographs shown were taken from the moment they were conceived and placed in a new temporality. All that remained was the minute, not the date, in the form of a bewilderment in which days merged, where the temporal perception was altered, dilated, or compressed.
CAPSULA is divided into two systems, which operate on different but complementary timelines: a website (projects-isiau.net/capsule/) and a book.
