Watches

This is a series I did of tiny sculptures and scenes built inside antique pocket watch cases. Some of them have moving parts, giving them a dynamism that cannot be conveyed by a still image. Many of them address the issue of time, but not linear time so much as cycles and seasons, memory and loss, birth and death; also musical time, measured time, arrested or frozen time, and the evidence of time passing. I enjoy working with actual objects that have textures, colors and history, then watching how they interact with each other. Viewing these sculptures is like looking through the glass into a miniature world where objects are playing out a private history.

Watches are 2.5 inches in diameter.
