The Clock is Christian Marclay’s 24-hour video installation created from thousands of clips of clocks, watches, and other references to time from 100 years of film and television.
Touted as a masterpiece, Marclay has edited together the past and synced to the present moment in a mesmerising collage of film and TV history, culminating in a cinematic odyssey of clock scenes that treats the audience to the joy of recognising favourite actors or scenes from their best loved movies. It’s also a functioning timepiece.
