A Jewelled Moment


Live projections and audio exploring the measurement of time.

Live projection of the inner workings and outer face of an antique pocket watch situated and in a church. The projections were installed opposite to each other. The accompanying audio, which was accessed through headphones, was of the amplified ticking of the pocket watch. The watch time was set to Switzerland where the watch was made.

“Only this moment counts, this moment alone, and that is because of the awareness that we bring to it.”
