Clockwork, originally created for The Heliotropic exhibition curated by Jennifer McMackon for Mercer Union in Toronto, contemplates time through dismantling and reconfiguring the operation of a series of clocks. These artificial constructs aid us in ordering our human existence. They are based on natural rhythms – the earth rolling around the sun, the moon pulling and pushing the tide. Time moves back at the same time that it moves forward. We encounter time that we left behind as we clock our 40-hour workweek.
