Developed for the exhibition SWITCH 2016 in the “International Center of Light Art” “Lindenbrauerei” is an interpretation of a clock. Here it fits very well in the tower of a church where a clockwork is normally found its place. A mechanism is running slowly and it is projected to a round projection circle one on one side. On the other side is a colourful light painting to be seen that is moving very slowly and also is projected on a round projection screen. This face of the clock shows no defined time. The object allows the audience to find an individual time. One intention is the feeling of having all time of the world on a summer afternoon for activities and the hanging around in a long time the artist remembers from his childhood and youth. Getting older the time seems to be often in a hurry and the artist tries to get back this freedom of feeling a long time in this object.
