The work, consisting of 190 clocks, explores the concepts of ’time’ and ’boundary’. The clocks arranged on a surface points to different times, but at two specific times in a day, the hands of the clock align to form a certain word written with Chinese characters. By capturing a specific moment with the tangible objects, the clocks, the boundary of invisible and never-stopping time is expressed.
