Anna Madeleine Raupach: Unequal Hours

Second by second, minute by minute, hour by hour; the temporal dimensions of local systems and global phenomena – from the Canberra light rail schedule to eclipse cycles – are explored in ‘Unequal Hours’, a kinetic installation by Anna Madeleine Raupach. Focusing on reimagining abstract notions of temporality, Ruapach employs layered mechanical clocks to physically represent multiple different timescales.

By placing standard timekeeping implements in dialogue with rhythms related to universal natural phenomena, the work aims to realign our technology-driven sense of time with natural cycles.
