The Squeezed Time / The Squeezed Time

The Squeezed Time
The Squeezed Time

Time is invisible to us, but it is real. There is a famous saying in Chinese: Time is squeezed out. This reminds us that we should grasp the time. Is there a way to visually display the meaning of time and the feeling of being "squeezed out"? At the same time, in the process of squeezing out, it can remind people that they need to exercise to avoid physical discomfort caused by long-term work. I try to visualize this strong feeling, time is like a bouncy ball held tightly by our hands. Through squeezing, "time" will be revealed. The movement and mental perception of squeezing will surprise and relax people.
