Timekeepers, 2008

“To see the world in a grain of sand, and heaven in a wild flower, to hold infinity in the palm of your hand, and eternity in an hour” (William Blake)

What does time look like? What does time feel like? Standard analogue and digital clocks exist in the here and now, only telling the precise moment of the present. Timekeepers clocks use thread and string to develop a new language of time. Time is a distance measured with a length of thread pulled through a standard clock mechanism. The thread winds into a container and creates its own particular shapes and forms. This gathering of thread is a physical manifestation of time, an accumulation of the real, tangible and visual that shows the past, present and the future. The Timekeepers can measure any moment of human 
experience decided by the user: from birth, death, marriage, absence, love and beyond. Over time, the growing object accumulates a personal narrative and emotional value specific and unique to its owner.
