Clocks

2017-2020

Over the past few years, we've made a number of works that center around alternative understandings of time and different forms of temporal measurement. New clocks. 

Progress is a forward march, drawing other kinds of time into its rhythms. Without that driving beat, we might notice other temporal patterns. Each living thing remakes the world through seasonal pulses of growth, lifetime reproductive patterns, and geographies of expansion. Within a given species, too, there are multiple time-making projects, as organisms enlist each other and coordinate in making landscapes.
