The Phenology Clock

Modified clocks, archival ink on paper rag.

Made in collaboration with Natalie Jeremijenko, The Phenology Clock project sees the creation of annual clocks that show the timing of life cycle events for species in specific urban ecosystems. Shown are two clocks prepared for the ecosystems of Sydney and New York and that explore a relation in time and space.
