Clockwork: Timepieces by Artists, Architects, and Industrial Designers

Cover of J. T. Fraser, Dana Friis-Hansen, and Katy Kline, Clockwork: Timepieces by Artists, Architects, and Industrial Designers (Cambridge, MA: MIT List Visual Arts Center, 1989).

This catalogue presents thirty contemporary American and Canadian artists, architects, and industrial designers whose clocks, watches, sandglasses, sculptures, models, plans, and sketches subvert conventional notions about the marking of time. Both J. T. Fraser and Dana Friis-Hansen discuss the nature and history of timepieces and the social impact of attitudes toward time. With comments on individual artists.

The exhibition took place December 17, 1988–February 12, 1989 at the MIT List Visual Arts Center in Cambridge, Massachusetts.
