Color Clocks: Verticals Lean Occasionally Consistently Away from Viewpoints
Three film sculptures: 35mm film, motors, aluminum, Plexiglas
Edition of 3
Color Clocks: Verticals Lean Occasionally Consistently Away from Viewpoints (2012) consists of three objects arranged in the space whose designs are reminiscent of the operation of a clock’s gear mechanism. Within their open housings, red, yellow and blue 35mm film strips slide through a mechanic sets of rollers in a continuous loop. The film strips are each imprinted with individual letters, spelling the three colors they represent, and suggest a form of text, albeit one which appears to have become obsolete in the space-time continuum. Each of the objects moves its color at its own specific rhythm so that together a kinetic image is produced. As a re-collection of timekeeping and the experience of time itself, Color Clocks plays with different modes of perception: a meditation on color, time, perception and language, repeated to infinity.
