pas un poisson
This clock has a second hand that ticks backwards. The mirrored face of the clock shows an image of a dolphin, which also appears in other works of this body of work around time perception. While dolphins of course are no fish, it loosely references Duchamp’s Roto Relief Poisson Japonais (also in the title). The whole clock is connected to a motor so that it rotates twice per minute in clockwise direction. In this way, while still ticking counterclockwise the second hand describes a minute clockwise. The dolphin “swims” two rounds per minute but just meets the second hand every full minute.
