Underactuation is a sculpture/installation that contrasts the measurement and display of time. The face of Underactuation displays seconds, minutes, and hours through three horizontal windows. Time is displayed in a linear fashion – the clock hands appear to move left and right.
The video projecting the inside of the steel housing reveals the circular motion of the clock mechanism contrasting with the linear display of the face: problematizing these two opposing ideologies/representations of time as concepts that reveal the potential multitudes of perspective/cosmology.
