"In 'Tiempo Real', a 24 hour long video, infinite time seems to spread out in its plenitude and devote itself to the spectator in an eternal offering. BUt when we get nearer -as usually happens with many of Macchi's works- this total and boundless time shows another face, as the numbers that show the time on the screen are made of fragile matches that at any time could be lit and burnt up in a second."
