the clock

to be specific, Christian Marclay’s The Clock, on display at the National Gallery of Canada

(the clock below has nothing to do with The Clock,

but it is one hell of A clock, no?!)

The Clock…  a twenty-four hour video montage composed of thousands of scenes from film and television in which a clock or watch appears with the time. The film is synchronized with the real time. It functions as a real clock.

riveting. charming. comforting. oddly consistent. astounding really.

a beautiful whole made up of unique collected, bits. bits, i gather, collected in a collaborative fashion.

naturally, this appeals to my sensibilities.

each bit tells a story. the story ,in turn, made of bits.

a video collage.

i heard the best was from around one to four a.m.

i spent a few afternoon hours with the clock after sleeping through several mid-night attempts. dommage.

tick tock

time well spent
