TIME IS NOW
Exquisite three-dimensional clock and time artworks
Anna Masters creates unique clock artworks by creating delicate three-dimensional compositions of salvaged watch and clock components. In these painstaking and exacting pieces, Masters pulls apart the mechanisms of timekeeping in order to examine our experience of time itself; arresting progress in a momentary collapsing of logic and order. Suspended apart from each other, the cogs do not turn. Can we loose ourselves in a moment here whilst the rest of the clocks keep on ticking around us? Masters' unique practice creates the illusion that the watch and clock parts are floating in a moment of explosion before time once again takes hold of the parts and gravity pulls them back together. Constructed over a number of layers of clear nylon, these works have a distinctive three-dimensional quality which allow the works to change as the light of the day changes.
