Messianic Clocks

Fabiola Carranza
Fabiola Carranza
26 × 26 × 3 cm

These clocks are subterranean. Their hands walk clockwise but move backwards. These clocks are immediate. ⁠⠀
Now. Waltz may⁠⠀
Now. Be⁠⠀
They rupture continuous time to hold the spirit of the neglected and the forgotten. ⁠⠀
Anything that swings evenly can be used to measure an interval but we first had the earth-sun, sand and water, the pendulum.⁠⠀
As tuning forks eased us into a sound fabric, messianic clocks merge causality and free will; setting up faulty knots to measure the wobbly movement of these elliptical times.⁠⠀
Watch. Now.⁠⠀
Fabiola Carranza is a Costa Rican/Canadian artist and writer based in Southern California. ⁠⠀
