Chronology: Presence

Canvas, electronics
2012
Chronology: Presence @COLLISION18:present
Chronology: Presence (detail) @COLLISION18:present

A blank canvas with a small black rectangle in the center is hung on a gallery wall. A wire leads from an outlet to the back of the frame. As the viewer moves closer they notice the black rectange contains digits and the word "Hours". The 1/10 hour place is slowly turning.

This work consists of an hour meter visible on the front. Hidden from the viewer are electronics and a dopplar radar unit. As the viewer comes closer to the piece, it senses their presense and starts counting on the hour meter. The hour meter hows the total time viewers have been looking at the piece. This thus refrences both time and context in one package.
