Display caption

This work comprises a clock, a photograph of it, and three enlarged entries from an English/Latin dictionary for the words ‘time’, ‘machination’ and ‘object’. In its combination of a real clock with a photographic image and related linguistic definitions, this work can be seen as a meditation on the nature of time and on ways of representing the concept of a clock.
