Bad Clocks: Alley Through A Pinhole

Bad Clocks: Alley Through a Pinhole is a site-specific and immersive installation that introduces a camera obscura into the Lower Gallery of Objectifs. By creating a pinhole in a darkened room, the environment surrounding the gallery projects back into its interiors, blending indoor and outdoor spaces with light.

‘Bad Clocks’ is an ongoing concept explored by DASSAD to reconsider the ways we understand and define time. This iteration explores the perception of time within the camera obscura, tracing back to the beginnings of photography. The camera obscura becomes a playground for interdisciplinary collaborations, inspiring visual, sound, performance and installation-based works concerned about the passing of time. This exhibition is led by DASSAD, in collaboration with installation artist, Victoria Hertel, movement artist, Neo Jialing, and writer, Euginia Tan, and with venue support from Objectifs.
