Remember our previous post about Peg Carpets by We Make Carpets using colorful clothes pins? Well, here’s another unique work by Heidi Voet and this time it is made of digital watches. The project is called Is six afraid of seven/ ’cause seven, eight, nine/ I’m about to lose the pieces I find. See, even its name is equally unique.
All the watch alarms are set at exactly the same time and simultaneously ring like a symphony throughout the duration of the exhibit. Eventually, the watches malfunction thereby losing their synchronicity. In the end, the sounds produced become out of tune and as the title of the project implies, the march of time is subtle yet unceasing and its cumulative effect results ultimately in dissolution and increased chaos.
