The Millennium Clock Tower holds up a mirror to our time. It is a brilliant collaborative work.
I propose the Millenium Clock because it would be a thought-provoking legacy to leave behind for future generations enabling them to look back to the turn of our century. It would also convey many insights into the work of the artists involved and their philosophy. The object is full of overt and hidden meaning. It is the work of several artists, but first and foremost, it is the result of the meeting of two minds, two great innovative and thoughtful artists of our time: The Russian kinetic sculptor Eduard Bersudsky who admits to retrieving lots of his raw material from refuse dumps, and the English-born sculptor, furniture-maker and poet Tim Stead - arguably the first to devise methods of making beautiful furniture from wood that would have been discarded by bulk manufacturers. The award-winning clock evokes a variety of echoes of our time. The photograph has been kindly provided by Peter Searle to be entered with this form.
