The Implication of Time is an immersive typographic and visual experience inspired by the collaborative work of filmmaker Christopher Nolan and composer Hans Zimmer. The goal of the installation is to represent the concept of time as the filmmakers intended; in a fragmented, non-linear, and disorienting manner, while emphasizing on its role in the shaping of memories and human nature.

A part of the installation is a series of posters that create a narrative based on the concept of time as manipulated by Nolan and Zimmer in their work. The posters make use of a combination of text from the films and from the papers of astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson. The images were created using a combination of analog and digital methods.
