Consecutive moments in no particular order

In 2005 we wandered trough an old deserted sanatorium in the woods of Brandenburg, in Germany. This area consisted of several old hospitals in decay; abandoned and overgrown. Nature took its control over the buildings.

One of these hospital buildings, which was in a reasonable state, housed my Studio at this time. We wondered around through these buildings a lot. The decay there was a strange reminder of times passed. At one of these hours long walks I noticed an old big clock hanging above a door in an arched hallway. Struck by the beauty of this clock I decided I wanted to take it down. With some help, I balanced on the top edge of the half opened door and took the clock with me as a souvenir. It was a Soviet clock with the letters CCCP on the clock face. But it wasn't really that old; it worked on electricity. So I took the clock to my studio.

Since I couldn't read any of the markings I just hooked a plug up to it.

To my surprise, the hands on the clock started moving back and forth, completely irregularly. Sometimes really fast and then hanging around at a certain time for twenty seconds.

It was a clock, which showed the possible times of the day in complete randomness; consecutive moments in no particular order.

The readymade I found that day became a very imported piece of work. Unfortunately the clock stopped working completely before its movements were documented. The hands I removed in order to repair the clock but I never got to do it. Now it is hanging again in my studio without the hands; telling the time without specifying the moment.
