In a unique video artwork conceptualized by Mark Formanek, 70 workers built a wooden 4 x 12 m “digital” time display in real time over 24 hours.

Formanek explains the project:

Standard Time is a performance lasting exactly 24 hours and recorded on film. However, this film is much more than just the recording of an action, the recording of something that has taken place in the past; it is also a clock. A clock for use right now and in the future which, as each day goes by, extends further into the past, but is still up-to-date and punctual.

The work was shot on video and is available as a 24 hour movie or clock.
