Timepiece by Conrad Shawcross

Published by on 23/08/13

The Roundhouse in Camden is currently home to a huge instalment by British artist Conrad Shawcross.

Known for his mechanical sculptures, Shawcross’s Timepiece is essentially a vast 8-metre faceless clock with bright lights fixed to the end of each arm, hanging from the Roundhouse’s ceiling.

Each arm moves at a different speed, one recording hours, one minutes and one seconds. The 3 steel structures unfold above head whilst the columns contribute to the eerie and haunting shadows cast across the room.

An ideal location, the Roundhouse is a great round building, obviously, featuring 24 supporting columns, Shawcross has turned the building into a Timepiece.
