“‘Eternity’ is a wall-mounted scupture made in collaboration with Mike Fleming. It consists of 30 Electric clocks rear-mounted to a large sheet of white acrylic. During installation, the black hour and minute hands of the clocks are aligned to spell the word “eternity”, and the clocks are plussed in to a series of power strips on the floor. The hands begin to move when the switch on the last power strip is flipped, and the word almost immediately becomes a jumble of moving black lines. “Eternity” does not reappear until the hour hands return to their originial positions twelve hours later. And even then, it lasts a mere split second.” – Alicia Eggert
