Having spent 2 years on The Clock (2010), video artist Christian Marclay is spending some time at The Power Plant, and Noa Knows, you shouldn’t let another second slip by without going to see it.
The Clock collages film clips into a 24 hour, looped, single-channel video that also functions as a working clock. Bringing seemingly fragmented time imagery like wristwatches, clock towers, sundials, alarm clocks, and countdowns together, Marclay manages to represent every minute of a full day in a continuous, 24 hour narrative.
You get caught up in The Clock because you’re watching what appears to be this endless film. You sort of know that it’s collaged together but part of you believes in it, so there’s this push-and-pull between multiple realities: the illusion of cinema and the obviousness of the collage and the reality of the real time. -Christian Marclay via ART iT
