ABOUT THE ARTWORK:
The artist aims to highlight the elusive nature of time and the importance of being mindful of how we spend our days. The ticking of the clock and the presence of the time bomb convey the urgency and significance of every passing moment. It serves as a wake-up call, urging us to not take time for granted and to be aware of its preciousness.
The sculpture invites viewers to reflect on their own perception of time and how they value it in their lives. It serves as a reminder that if we are not paying attention to the fleeting nature of time, we run the risk of unknowingly destroying the essence of our existence. Ultimately, the sculpture suggests that how we choose to live our lives and prioritize our time matters greatly, as time is the ultimate finite resource.
