Canales links this new interest in “microtime” with developments in media technology requiring the exact measurement of fragments of time. See Canales, A Tenth of a Second: A History (Chicago: University of Chicago Press, 2010), ix–x. For a project that stands counter to Otero-Pailos, Canales participated in a reenactment of the 1922 dialogue between Albert Einstein and Henri Bergson in Paris regarding the nature of time. A write-up of the event appears in Bruno Latour, “Some Experiments in Art and Politics,” e-Flux Journal,http://www.e-flux.com/journal/some-experiments-in-art-and-politics/
