Floating Frames 1.0 | Grandmother Clock
copper nickel plated | 205 x 80 x 45 cm | 2010
Floating Frames are a family of objects that show only the skeleton of what they could be, yet representing a function in full state. The objects exist between fiction and reality, they are ultra transparent and seem to float in space by almost getting absorbed by their surroundings.
In this work the construction looks like tiny ink drawings.
The big pieces are made out of polished brass wire with added ceramic parts that determine a function. Clearly you can see the function: a clock.
