Clock: This piece originated in similar feelings of being pressured by time. Clocks dictate the organization to our day, forcing us to consciously adhere to its temporal divisions. Time affects us on a cellular level. Humans are victims of a profound dissonance between cultural time and natural rhythm. I wished to contrast the idea of body rhythm to the clock. The clock has stopped, yet the ants continue their cycle of activity and rest in natural alteration. Life rhythms continue without the mechanical measurement of time.
