It’s been described as “the most complex thing made by any artist so far this century”.
The Clock by Christian Marclay is a piece of installation art – a 24 hour long montage of thousands of film and television scenes that all reference an exact minute of the day.
Synchronised with the actual time that it is being displayed, The Clock serves the function of actually telling you the correct time. Similar in concept to the 100 Movies, 100 Numbers film, this epic undertaking dwarfs it in scope, ambition and function.
For those of us in Australia, it will be on display at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Sydney from March 29th this year.
