A Recent Proposal for the InLight Festival, Richmond, Virginia

March 31, 2009

I recently created these images as part of a proposal for the InLight Festival in Richmond, Virginia, sponsored by 1708 Gallery. For my piece, I mocked up a clock made of 3 rotating fluorescent tubes. The largest hand of the clock is an 8 foot long tube, followed by a 4 foot and a 2 foot. Although intuitively, we would expect the smallest to be the seconds, and the largest, the hours, I think it will better to look at if the biggest hand moves the most. Thus, I will reverse the order and make the 8 foot tube the seconds. The other main dilemma I am facing is how an onlooker will tell which side of the tube is which? How will we distinguish between 12 o’clock and 6 o’clock if the tube rotates from the middle? I’m going to continue thinking about this one.
