Time on my hands

Lock down project II

I realised in December that another #lockdown was the probable way the New Year would begin, so decided I needed a new #project to create.

What I had learned in the first lock down was how much I had forgotten about the value of #time and how easy it was to lose track of it.

I decided to make a series of #clocks, while I thought about how I used my own time now, how I had used it in the past and how I might be able to use it better in the future.

I am enjoying and believe I will benefit from the time to reflect on my chosen project.

The clocks have become a really enjoyable series to make, slowing me down in the process and allowing me the time and space to think about the future and how that can be different for me.

Given that time is based on the rotation of the earth I wanted the clocks to have planetary or science fiction feel to them so have been taking my time to create interesting surfaces and #textures as part of their construction.

To date I have only completed one, which is the one at the top of page, which I have claimed for my own home. The remaining ones below are at varying stages in the #process.

Clock faces in the process of being created

I have it in mind that I will create twelve. I am not sure as yet whether they will all be round or the same size, I have not put a time limit on the #project, as while I am enjoying and benefiting from it there is no reason to do that.

Whatever happens in my studio, or wherever else I create, I shall write about it here on my #blog so you can join me on the journey if you wish by subscribing, or following me on social media.
