Timepiece #1
What do we actually measure when we measure time? 
A critique on the familiar concept of timekeeping, Timepiece #1 invites dialogue around notions of time in the current age of the Anthropocene. In contrast to conventional clocks, whose purpose is to position us in a precise yet narrow indication of ‘now’, this clock presents ‘now’ as an unspecified and extended duration which exists beyond the length of a day, and asks us to engage in long term thinking. It provides no fixed points of reference or measurement, yet displays the time that has passed through the artificial weathering of the rock, and future time that exists in the material that is yet to be ground down. A metal hand wears away the rock as it rotates - the clock becomes a measure of its own time and materiality.
