The Deceleration Chamber was concerned with two entangled ideas: the elasticity of time— especially slow time—and how time is specifically experienced when one is away from familiar surroundings: on tour, traveling or on vacation. Encountering the unfamiliar, being lost or disorientated affects how time is perceived, how data is recorded and recollected, and how all of us choose the mode by which we measure, mark or experience the passage of time.

Locations/ National was a unique project both in scope and magnitude. From Halifax to Victoria, Canadians were able to encounter work by Canadians, on a local as well as national level.

In the spirit of the 1983 World Communications Year, Locations/ National attempted to established a model communications network for future cultural projects between Canadian cities. Rather than the traditional approach of concentrating culturally-relevant activities in major centres for the benefit of a few, the national link-up in Locations/National allowed for the crucial exchange of information on a national level.
