1190: Time

On Friday, xkcd #1190—Timecame to an end.

It was a huge project, but since it was all concealed within a single comic panel, I thought I’d end with this short post to explain what was going on. If you want to see the story yourself before I spoil anything, you can use one of the many excellent third-party Time explorers, like the Geekwagon viewer, or one of the others listed here.

When the comic first went up, it just showed two people sitting on a beach. Every half hour (and later every hour), a new version of the comic appeared, showing the figures in different positions. Eventually, the pair started building a sand castle.

There was a flurry of attention early on, as people caught on to the gimmick. Readers watched for a while, and then, when nothing seemed to be happening, many wandered away—perhaps confused, or perhaps satisfied that they’d found a nice easter-egg story about castles.

But Time kept going, and hints started appearing that there was more to the story than just sand castles. A few dedicated readers obsessively cataloged every detail, watching every frame for clues and every changing pixel for new information. The xkcd forum thread on Time grew terrifyingly fast, developing a subculture with its own vocabulary, songs, inside jokes, and even a religion or two.

And as Time unfolded, readers gradually figured out that it was a story, set far in the future, about one of the strangest phenomena in our world: The Mediterranean Sea sometimes evaporates, leaving dry land miles below the old sea level … and then fills back up in a single massive flood.


(A special thank you to Phil Plait for his advice on the far-future night sky sequence, and to Dan, Emad, and everyone else for your help on various details of the Time world.)

Time was a bigger project than I planned. All told, I drew 3,099 panels. I animated a starfield, pored over maps and research papers, talked with biologists and botanists, and created a plausible future language for readers to try to decode.

I wrote the whole story before I drew the first frame, and had almost a thousand panels already drawn before I posted the first one. But as the story progressed, the later panels took longer to draw than I expected, and Time began—ironically—eating more and more of my time. Frames that went up every hour were sometimes taking more than an hour to make, and I spent the final months doing practically nothing but drawing.

To the intrepid, clever, sometimes crazy readers who followed it the whole way through, watching every pixel change and catching every detail: Thank you. This was for you. It’s been quite a journey; I hope you enjoyed the ride as much as I did!

P.S. A lot of people have asked if I can sell some kind of Time print collection (or a series of 3,099 t-shirts, where you run to the bathroom and change into a new one every hour). I’m afraid I don’t have anything like that in the works right now. I just made this because I thought it would be neat, and now that it’s done, my only plan is to spend the next eleven thousand years catching up on sleep. If you liked the project, you’re always welcome to donate via PayPal (xkcd@xkcd.com) or buy something from the xkcd store. Thank you.

  1. I too kept my browser open for a long time when Time first came out. Alas, time took it’s toll, and while I sometimes went back to check it, it gradually left my conscious

  2. Homer: Is this episode going on the air live?
    June: No, Homer. Very few cartoons are broadcast live. It’s a terrible strain on the animators’ wrists.

    …and yet you managed it! Well done, and thanks for the temporary, bordering-on-obsessive hobby of checking back on a web page every hour :).

  3. So, I have a question for your what-if.
    What if I was standing in southern Ontario, facing East in a school cafeteria at 11:00 PM, July 8th, 2011, holding an apple in front of me, and the apple INSTANTLY lost ALL of its velocity and momentum.
    So, taking into account the movement of the universe, galaxy, galactic arm, solar system, Earth, earth’s orbit, etc~
    Feel free to modify the location of the apple and direction I am facing for convenience.

  4. Any chance the comic can be put into loop mode so it starts from the first picture and loops to the next over the course of months? It is kind of sad that it just loops over a rocking boat.

  5. @Nicholas Hylands It all depends on your reference frame. Einstein’s theory of relativity states (among other things) that every reference frame is equally valid – it is just as true to say that the Earth is moving at 10 mph relative to you as vice versa (although we often measure stuff relative to the Earth for the sake of convenience). So what you are really asking is “what would happen if an apple suddenly began moving at velocity x relative to y”? I would imagine that the result is usually “an apple hits the Earth (possibly going quite fast)” or “an apple zooms of into space (definitely going quite fast)”.

  6. I know it might take away some of the spirit of the project to put it in another media, but have you thought of making this a short film? Maybe sending it off to festivals.

    I think it would do well.

    Sorry if this idea has been put out there, there’s a lot of data for this strip.

  7. I had Time set as my homepage for a long time, and would keep the tab open all day, checking it at regular intervals during the day. (“It’s been five minutes, I wonder if anything has changed.”) It was a fascinating and engrossing project. I would love to see it more fully explained… there is much that I wasn’t able to grasp. It seems like such a well-developed story and world, it would be great to be able to understand it better. Thank you for doing this!

  8. I feel so lucky that I was curious enough to dig up more information when I first stumbled upon Time. Though I rarely returned to the original, I regularly checked up on the third party sites, and read through much of the speculation on the forums.

    What a fantastic project. More than anything I appreciated the dedication to the craft. It was not advertised, and it didn’t draw attention to itself, it was just a project of passion (and discipline!) for curious and dedicated fans. I’ve always appreciated how much you value curiosity, thank you so much for this gem!

  9. Just wanted to thank you so much for this. Like other people I checked it out a couple of times but life got busy and I didn’t manage to keep track of the whole thing and (shamefully!) forgot about it. I’ve just watched the whole thing and it’s utterly beautiful and really touching- you created a wonderfully realised world and engaging characters based on a fascinating premise – the best kind of science fiction. And a happy ending as well!

  14. Noting the four posts directly above . . .

    Where IS a SysAdm when we need one? Please?

    Oh, and for sure, while agreeing with the various methods above for extending and perpetuating “Time,” I STILL think that MOMA should add this to their permanent collection. Or the Guggenheim, or the Whitney . . . .

  15. Oh man, I missed it!

    I literally would not have even known this was going on if I had not checked the “BLAG”.

  16. Thank you for a wonderful work of art. I intend to tell this story to my kid brother as his bedtime story for a while. Thank you.

  17. I just watched the entire thing on my computer. Awesome story. Awesome imagery (for stick figures). Whatever you need for encouragement, you got it!

  18. Steve Singer – I think MoCANY (Museum of Comic Art in New York) would be a better venue. They have displayed epic comic works before, like Scott McCloud’s 16-foot high comic about chess.
    And spam seems to be endemic to the blag.

  19. Wow, I completely missed this one. I didn’t even realise what ‘Time’ was at first; then when I heard it was a very gradually updating animation about sandcastles, I couldn’t be bothered and ignored it.

    Just watched the whole thing. Rather cute, but also quite transcendentally, exquisitely pointless. What a huge amount of effort to put into such a simple idea (and one which only a relatively tiny number of people followed). Kind of sums up xkcd, really!

  20. Arlo James Barnes – MoCANY, maybe, but only after the Whitney Biennial. And . . . ahh, screw it, I disagree. Aim high! I would love to see this in one undulating spiral up through the Guggenheim.

    Alasdair – If so, then why bother to respond at all? Or be bothered to look at any non-utilitarian work of art? Or read an obscure novel? Or listen to a . . .

  21. At 1 frame per second, this would be 52 minutes long. If you delayed longer on the text frames (and/or split up messages and responses between multiple frames), it could easily be over an hour long – and better than most of movies I’ve seen in the last few years. This was amazing, thank you for sharing it.

  22. I’m impressed, I have to say. Actually hardly ever do
    I encounter a weblog that’s each educative and entertaining, and let me
    let you know, you have hit the nail on the head. Your
    thought is excellent; the problem is something that not enough
    people are speaking intelligently about. I’m very
    happy that I stumbled throughout this in my search for one thing
    referring to this.

  23. Traditionally, time is seen as measuring the distance between events. It is composed of past, present and future. The past is regarded as something already happened can not be changed. The future, however, is considered to be available to a multitude of possibilities.

  24. Interesting., I have no idea about this. Glad I discovered this site. Visit the above link to see my profile. Issues you raised is very interesting site to see them encouraged me. Highly attractive site it is spectacular.

  25. Einstein’s time – For millennia, the most brilliant scholars and scientists have tried to solve one of the greatest mysteries of humanity: the nature of time. It has a start time? ‘ll Ever get to an end? Why not just move in one direction? And what exactly is time? Albert Einstein overturned all existing theories when, in the early twentieth century, demonstrated that time is relative and it depends on motion and gravity. Revolutionary theory opened the door to the study of black holes, wormholes and on the time travel.

  26. I’m not sure if this has been addressed or not, but one thing I’d be interested in would be the effects of the air pressure down in the mediterranean basin once dried up. (Larger birds, for example, would be very possible – and the thicker air might make physical exertion more possible.)
    Possible what-if?

  27. The grandfather by Don fabio
    The Grandfather, Don Pacio Luciano, a reasonable, honourable man of integrity had sought justice after the deadly attacks on his family by suspected members of the notorious Sicilian Cosa Nostra. This is an outstanding story of love, honour, vengeance and astonishing revelation of the secret operations……

  28. A note about those adjective-plus color names that women came up with but men didn’t: Women got those from department stores and drug stores. Every one of those colors is credible as the name of a shade of eye shadow or lip gloss.

  29. Research has
    demonstrated that specific colors and patterns direct
    ly influence the health, morale, emotions, behavior,
    and performance of learners, dependi
    ng on the individual’s culture, age,
    gender, and developmental level,
    the subject being studied, and the activity being conducted.

  30. Color is an important factor in the physical learning
    environment and is a major element in interior design
    that impacts student achievement, as well as teacher
    effectiveness and staff efficiency.

  31. Simply desire to say your article is as astonishing.
    The clearness in your post is just great and i could assume
    you are an expert on this subject. Well with your permission let
    me to grab your feed to keep up to date with forthcoming post.
    Thanks a million and please keep up the enjoyable work.

  33. The Time is a master of ceremonies who always bring us where we ought to be, advance, stop and give back to his orders, our mistake is that we imagine that we can bilk.

  35. The past is regarded as something already happened can not be changed. The future, however, is considered to be available to a multitude of possibilities.

  36. In my opinion The Time is a master of ceremonies who always bring us where we ought to be, advance, stop and give back to his orders, our mistake is that we imagine that we can bilk.

  37. I had Time set as my homepage for a long time, and would keep the tab open all day, checking it at regular intervals during the day. (“It’s been five minutes, I wonder if anything has changed.”) It was a fascinating and engrossing project.
