Cut and Paste | Vertical Clock

ceramics, glass, brass, oak & pine wood, mirror | 36 x 36 x 120 cm | 2010

A big and a small hand are moving within a glass cloche in a vertical direction and tell you the time in a very fascinating way. Because they move in a vertical direction, instead of horizontal like usual, it somehow gets more difficult to read the time. Yet it makes one even more conscious of time, because it?s such a fascinating and almost mysterious experience. The hands move around in a grey ceramic "soft" holder which is covered by a glass cloche. This assembling is stacked on a green mini table which is piled upon it?s own grey pedestal with mirror. A fascinating installation about the experience of time.
