The division between space and negative space, and the measurement of time are somehow entwined. Matilda does not tell the time, merely indicates its passing. The clock face rotates once per hour, gradually fading between black and a translucent grey, then returning to black once again as the hour draws to a close. Does our perception of time change with the density of black? Will a singular hour pass slowly, one second followed by another or will it fly by without a second glance?
Materials: copper, steel, polarising film
The time can be told only up to one hour. The copper hand and polarising film rotate in small increments like the minute hand on a clock, and the colour fades from black to a transparent grey twice per hour, (every 90 degrees.) This has the effect of changing our perception of the time passing.
