When every minute is constructed

When every minute is constructed

70 workers are building a wooden display of time that mimics “digital” time in real time over 24 hours. From Mark Formanek:

Standard Time is a performance lasting exactly 24 hours and recorded on film. However, this film is much more than just the recording of an action, the recording of something that has taken place in the past; it is also a clock. A clock for use right now and in the future which, as each day goes by, extends further into the past, but is still up-to-date and punctual

Since I don’t have a clock in my room yet I thought well how cool would it be to have your Standard Time project just on loop on a TFT.”

Now we can too.
