The importance of the invention of the clock to recent human history cannot be understated.
Without the ability to measure time, we would not have been able to organise ourselves sufficiently to undergo industrial and technological revolution.
We would not have been able to navigate effectively so would have been constrained to our respective corners of the globe. Most modern technologies would not work without accurate timekeeping.
By its nature, the Chronophage clock is inventive and I love the challenge of designing something new, so I’m open to accepting commissions.
Each Chronophage, which is Ancient Greek for ‘time-eater’, is relentlessly hungry, gobbling up minute after minute so that you can never have it back.
I want each Chronophage to continue to eat time for hundreds of years, so I have used materials that I know will last. Enamel, for instance, has been found in the tombs of the Pharaohs and it is my hope that these clocks will be as mysterious and mythical to our descendants as the hieroglyphs are to us.
By commissioning a Chronophage, a passionate art collector would involve themselves in a unique artistic project, tying their legacy to these iconic timepieces. It’s worth noting that the commissioners of great works are often remembered alongside the artists themselves.
