Mixed Media: "Illustrations of Time"


This series includes three illustrations of time (time burning/melting away, frozen in time, and spinning in circles). The candle was made by making a plaster mold and filling it with wax, sand, and a string wick. For the ice clock, I made a latex mold around a clay prototype, then froze water in the latex mold. I built the clock by taking apart a clock and then using the motor for my new creation. I reimagined a way of telling time, with the sole hand pointing upwards at the numerical value of the current time. The outer circle shows the hours, the middle circle shows the minutes, and the inner circle shows the seconds. The circles rotate, and the time is always shown at the top of the clock.
