CLOCKWORK CINEMA
A Kinetic Edition of 100 comissioned byCornerhouse Gallery Manchester, 1997

Wind the machine up and the pictures spin just about fast enough for us to assemble two images into a simple repetitive semblance of motion but slow enough for us to be able clearly to see the artifice that lies at the heart of all narrative the way all movement is made, a stream of frozen instants an illusion of fluid motion like the frames of a film giving an illusion of life (or a life's passing moments giving the illusion of meaning.) There are still a few "Clockwork Cinemas" available contact me at for more information and current price.
