As Much Time as Space, is a 16 mm film installation conceived at the van Doesburghuis in Meudon (Paris) beginning of 2017 (for the exhibition 
De Kleuren van de Stijl in Kunsthal KAdE, Amersfoort NL.) It consists of one film, projected by two projectors, using the time it takes for the pellicule to travel from one projector to the other — 8 seconds, as a framework for the film. The film was shot inside the house of modernist artist couple Theo and Nelly van Doesburg and combines architectural details of the house with Mater’s own drawings. Projected as a split screen we look at a play between past and present that every once in a while merge to form a new reality, providing a surreal time experience. A wandering narrative exploring tables, stairs, space- and time-perception, colour and some van Doesburg heritage.
