it’s about time, 2014

12 lead digits from an old clock (replica), 420 mm x variable widths


The 12 Roman numerals of a large dial on a former clock have been reconstructed. Its circular form was severed at the cipher VI, and both loose ends are bent upward, interpreting “time” as linear, instead of an endlessly repetitive cycle.
 Thus, repeatable time becomes time in history. The anonymity of time becomes personal and private and therefore limited life-time.
