A guide to some open works references

The goal of the Open Works project is to reflect on different ideas about time that we have explored and discussed and to develop a project that builds on that knowledge. Another goal is that it is considered in a more open framework, something that acknowledges space and the role that a viewer or participant has on the work.

The following examples are a variety of approaches, or ideas worth mentioning. I have grouped them into ideas though many of them fit multiple categories. This is a starting point. To see all of the posts related to open works, click here.
