Uret, 1998

uret_1

Sculptural project consisting of a square with three sections; stainles steel, sandstone, water and neon tubes connected to electronics.

Beside the obvious sculptural aspects the work is intended to demonstrate the close relation between light and time. The work is placed
on a North-South axis, and one section of the work can function as a sun dial. The neon tubes in the large cubic section are programmed
to show the change of time every full hour as a satellite signal is recieved from the socalled atomic cloc in Frankfurt. The green neon
tube which is permanently switched on, is positionend in an angle of 55,5 degrees which means that it points towards the Polar Star.
The position will change with 1,3969712 degree per century which means that a full circle takes 25 770 years.
