In this series I was drawn to the idea that the color and number of a digital clock’s interface might be tied to an emotional state, not unlike the way abstract relationships between rhythm and pitch can affect mood in music. In this case, people may also their own associations with specific times based on their personal schedule.
The location of this kind of clock, commonly found on a bedside table, was also significant to me. These digits are often the last thing seen before going to sleep, and the first thing seen when waking up. The clocks are all fixed on one time, and do not include any buttons. I hope that by presenting a remade object from daily-life, with subtle uncanny manipulations, the sculptures might take on a kind of presence of their own.
