2014. 3 metric rulers, projector, computer and coding
Metron is a metronomic clock that doesn’t tell time but suggests its passing. The audience perceives randomly colored bars of light running across steel metre rulers at different speeds. The metre rulers measure the hour, minute and second respectively.
The work was first shown in an exhibition which looks at the city as manifold, distinct time-spaces. Growing up in a small town, the artist was moved to the city at age nine. His corporeal sense of time – of his home – was jolted by his new physical environment. Time in the city is largely quantitative, parcelled into seconds and minutes of the clock; its space, linear and frictionless. This is in contrast to the rhythmic flow of life in a small town.
