“The historical event of a dome being destructed,
then replaced by the world’s largest outdoor pool
and then re-appearing years later had the artist
Judith Sönnicken consider the mental architecture
of these structures and the intermission in between.
Her consideration takes on four-dimensional forms
before finally materializing into a fictional museum
and its permanent collection: The Museum of Delta.
Within the fictional institution Sönnicken simultaneously
acts as curator and artist, inviting the visitor
to dive for fossils that narrate a river’s eternal flow.”

“Delta Time or Delta Timing is a concept
used amongst programmers in relation to hardware
and network responsiveness. In graphics programming,
the term is usually used for variably updating scenery
based on the elapsed time since the game last updated.
In precise timekeeping, ΔT (Delta T, delta-T, deltaT, or DT)
is the time difference obtained by subtracting Universal Time (UT) from Terrestrial Time (TT).
A river delta is a landform that forms from deposition
of sediment carried by a river as the flow leaves its mouth
and enters slower-moving or standing water.”
