SECONDS

2011

 

SECONDS is about time and the mutability of its perception. An opaque black panel holds sixty fluorescent clock arms activated in two phases: In the first phase they move asynchronously, visually and auditory evoking a feeling of fragmentation that stimulates the viewer to reflect about the concept of time and the objects by which we structure our existence.
In the second phase the arms stop and start again synchronously making a rhythmic sound. In this whole cycle the arms generate different figures. The ordinary notion of space and time is questioned in favor of a subjective perception.
