Since the invention of the clock, man has been shackled by time. Thousands upon thousands of hours have gone into creating machines with which we can measure this illusive phenomenon.
William Faulkner wrote, “Time is dead as long as it is being ticked off by little wheels”. Perhaps he refers to the relative nature of time. Is it ignorant to assume that a minute passes the same way for me as it does for you? If so, I believe Faulkner raises an important question; is a clock really the most relevant means of understanding time?
In this piece I created an object from a dead pendulum clock which aims, not to tell us the time, but rather help us to gain a deeper insight into what time really is.
