Press Junket for The Clock (2010)


THE CLOCK was created "from thousands of edited fragments, from a vast range of films to create a 24-hour, single-channel video. While THE CLOCK examines how time, plot and duration are depicted in cinema, the video is also a working timepiece that is synchronized to the local time zone. At any moment, the viewer can look at the work and use it to tell the time. Yet the audience watching THE CLOCK experiences a vast range of narratives, settings and moods within the space of a few minutes, making time unravel in countless directions at once." (
