Description

“If a true chronometer tells you what time it is not, until now, citizen, an honest watch was a lie.”

The French Revolution and American slavery emancipation entangle in an alternate world in which the trajectory of history is mutable and egalité takes on extra-dimensional implications. So goes the chronautic undertakings of Fannie Azul, the protagonist in the eponymous work by author Mark von Schlegell. Out of this universe comes The Fainnie Azul Horologe – a new publication in the form of a digital watch: a ficto-chronographer that at once keeps the calendrier révolutionnaire according to the principles of decimal time as well as our own archaic Gregorian form. The timekeeper features a cosmological odometer, indexing in km/second as the Earth speeds through the cosmic background radiation: the one universal reference in a space-time defined by relativity. The Fainnie Azul Horologe was conceived by Mark von Schlegell with algorithm development by Erik Wysocan.

Art writer and science fiction novelist Mark von Schlegell is the author of Venusia (2005), Mercury Station (2009) and the forthcoming Sundogz, from Semiotext(e). He teaches the Pure Fiction Seminar at Staedelschule, Frankfurt, Germany. His criticism and fiction appear regularly the world over. He has scripted numerous Artist Films including Ben Rivers’ Slow Action (2010) and Frances Scholz’s Episodes of Starlite (2011). His story “Fainnie Azul,” inspiration for the Fainnie Azul Horologe, will be published as one of Semiotext(e)’s 2014 Whitney Biennial pamphlets.
