About the artwork

An installation of innumerable small clocks arranged like a flock of starlings. The congregation of starlings seems like tobedriven by single will while at the same time each individual bird appears to be flying freely. The distinctive meaning of each clock and the continuous movement these clocks collectively make interlock through the perspective of viewers. Something that traverses the gap between meaning and nonsense, subject and object, and individual and public exists in Echigo-Tsumari Satoyama Museum of Contemporary Art, KINARE.
