An artist has a vision. He wants to build a 2400 km circular high speed train track in central Europe crossing Germany, Austria, Italy, France, Belgium and The Netherlands. A convoy running at 200 km/h will need 12 hours to cover the circle. Its movement will act as an art installation, a continental dimension clock, a tourist attraction and as a symbol of the European identity.
A mega budget meta project, Train Time carves out a much needed space for discussion between our present and what is possible. Whether from the perspective of politicians, the public, privileged passengers or crew, we can ask where are we going, and at what cost. The ongoing research and debate will touch upon:

  • European identity
  • Philosophy
  • Ecology
  • Engineering and logistics
  • Social issues
  • Art and culture
  • Economy and politics

These are the people we have interviewed so far.

Train Time Zeit Zug: continental infrastructure driven by culture, by reflection, by dialogue, not commerce, conflict or communications.

TTZZ is a documentary and an exhibition about the hypothetical construction of this project, its interests and its drawbacks, its absurdity and its cleverness.
I have been awarded with a grant by the DiputaciĆ³n de Huesca, in the north of Spain, to write and shoot the documentary, and present it as an exhibition at the gallery of the institution in September of 2010
