Time and Time Again 2

Galerie Oele Amsterdam 1997

Of the two digital clocks one indicates the time while the other displays that time in reverse. At the moment the two clocks display the same time, which happens eight times an hour, the mirror-clock temporarily switches to actual time and vice versa. On the top of the hour, programmed texts roll by from right to left, which deal with concepts of time and art. Some letters in those words are identical to the original and/or mirrored numbers.
