[ISEA2012] Artists Statement: Alicia Eggert & Mike Fleming – Eternity (2011)

Artists Statement

electric clocks, acrylic, power strips

Eternity consists of 30 electric clocks rear-mounted to a large sheet of white acrylic. The black hour and minute hands of the clocks are aligned to spell the word “eternity.” The hands move when the last power strip is flipped, and the word becomes a jumble of moving black lines, returning to their original positions every twelve hours for a split second.
