Chronos and Kairos are two different ways of experiencing time. Chronos is the factual time. Kairos is the personal way of perceiving time. An artichoke has the characteristic of blossoming slowly. It’s alive and moves within a space, so while watching it you can feel time passing by. By placing the artichoke on the wall in this porcelain wall vase it refers to a clock. Like this you experience time in a more natural and personal way.
