I was invited to take part in a show called “Timewarped” in Berlin which was curated by Matt Jones AKA Lunartik. The brief was to create a functional wall clock, maximum size approx 50 cm squared.
This was a brilliant opportunity to do something a little different and to go BIG!
I worked with mainly plywood for the functionality and scale of the piece. Cutting the plywood I managed to do the classic knife slipping over the edge of the steel rule and almost losing the tip of my finger. Pause time on the clock for a quick trip to A&E.
I really wanted to do something with a nod to the Cuckoo style clock. I played with the theme that a clock has a face and I gave mine 3, one of which is spitting out the cuckoo bird. The clock is flat to the wall but the box shaped head is built in such a way that it is 3d. I painted each face different tones of grey to emphasise the forms.
I hope you like it!
