RoundTime Clock

Lacquered PET plastic, 2018, 12"w x 18"h x 3"d

In daily life we take for granted how the objects we surround ourselves with guide our behavior. In observing clocks, I noticed that they exclusively represented time in a very precise way. Our personal experience of time is very different from this exactness that traps our lives in a constant schedule. RoundTime Clock eases the immediacy in our day through large playful forms. As the hands move, the clock changes composition and the sculpted shapes shift light across their surface to reveal a broader recognition of how time passes.

Due to the building guidelines that are in place in response to the COVID-19 situation, we are unable to install a new art exhibit in our Farmington Hills, Michigan and Fort Worth, Texas offices.

Thankfully, the majority of artists who currently have their work on display in our Michigan and Texas locations have graciously allowed us to continue to do so through the spring of 2021. We would like to extend a huge thank you to those artists and we look forward to continuing with a new exhibition in the summer of 2021.
