Time Crystals is an experimental short film about images, memory, and time, as told by a not-quite-human narrator.
This synthetic narrator is remembering time through images, though it's not clear if the memories are real, if they are fantasies, or something in-between. The narrator describes finding patterns in time, which "she" calls time crystals. We do not know if this enigmatic film is a record, a signal, or a dream.
