Twice Over

August 7th, 2008

This installation is called ‘Twice Over‘ and was done by Tyler Coburn and Benjamin Farnsworth. It is a digital clock combined with some neon tubes. This is its schedule:

08:00:00pm Open Set / Midnight GMT
12:00:00am Empty Set
12:45:00am End Cycle

I’m not sure if you really could read the time from it. If you want to see what happens then go and watch the movie here.

EDIT:
Tyler Coburn just send me some more information about this project:

(2008), a collaboration with Londoner Benjamin Farnsworth, attempts to build a trans-temporal, trans-spatial communication device. Consisting of a digital clock and neon sculpture, our piece measures the distance between midnight (Greenwich Mean Time) and my local midnight (New York City). The observatory in Greenwich, England has always held a fascination for me, particularly because one can visit it and spatially inhabit the origin-point of time. Twice Over attempts a similar spatio-temporal collapse in a machine that nightly makes a transatlantic journey from an open to an empty set, and from one midnight to another.
