The language that is used in watch making is not only highly technical, it is also psychological. When you are concerned with the mechanical side of visualizing time, thoughts about mortality, temporality and memory seem to seep in automatically. The works in the exhibition Dead Seconds are appropriated texts and imagery found in watchmaking journals. They emphasize moments when the use of language is mechanical, personal and poetic in the same time.
The title of the exhibition is Dead Seconds, which is the little sliver of silence that is artificially produced to make the distinction between one second and the next. Other articles, that have titles such as Split Personalities or Pressing Issues, have been silk screened, burnt to the brink of disintegration and scattered over the floor of the exhibition space.
