What is wrong here? Why is a 1900 vintage Gilbert clock housing a tachyon plasma display? The original brass movement was transmografied into a wormhole time gauge while an antique porcelain switch controls the direction of time travel. The many anachronisms bring into question issues of time, place and space. How did it get here? Who used it? How does it work?
This piece is the result of over six months of work, including four months of high voltage experiments to come up with a small, solid state Jacob's Ladder. The second story is an oak file card box from the 1950s, while some interesting brass and copper repurposed pieces used in this assemblage include two oilers and a boiler safety valve.
