This is a version of Timepiece that was exhibited in the Ice House as part of 'Elemental', an exhibition in the Sculpture Garden at Burghley House in 2014. As with the earlier version of Timepiece, the subject is the patterns of time that are in the hour and how they can be revealed. The sculpture therefore responds to seconds, minutes and the quarterly divisions of the hour, as well as to its beginning and end, through the movement and the appearance of specific configurations of neon light. It also bears a relationship to the frequency of the human pulse, characterised through the appearance of no more than a flicker of light in any one of the tubes.
A previous version of this sculpture in an alternate configuration was shown at The Royal British Society Of Sculptors in 2009.
