Feral Clocks, 100 LED clock/radios installed in natural settings, 2014

When time is merely a mirage, numbers flash and radio static buzzes as the clocks go feral. This work was inspired by firefly mating signals, cicada songs, and the eerie post-storm ambiance when all the clocks in the house are blinking after a blackout, when the sense of time is temporarily suspended.  It's also an exploration in the encroachment of technology on nature, McLuhan's view of technology as a natural outgrowth, and the idea of an Elan Vital (life force) inherent even in machines.
