This world is a collection of clocks from 1930s and 1940s movies - documented via Youtube screenshots. The film is stopped at exactly the time that the clock appears on the screen. It is both a deeply felt homage to the films of that era and a reflection on the way we mark time. I found these clocks by watching the movies - over the course of twenty-plus years. Not all good movies but so many great ones.
“Time is a river which sweeps me along, but I am the river; it is a tiger which destroys me, but I am the tiger; it is a fire which consumes me, but I am the fire.” - Jorge Luis Borges,
"Uexküll shows that such a unitary world does not exist, just as a space and time that are equal for all living things do not exist. The fly, the dragonfly, and the bee, that we observe flying next to us on a sunny day, do not move in the same world as the one in which we observe them, nor do they share with us – or with each other – the same time and the same space." -Giorgio Agamben, The Open, 2004
