Artista da piazza



Susan Philipsz ha visto la selezione per il Birmingham Big Art Project, iniziativa di arte pubblica della città di Birmingham. L’opera consiste in un grande orologio che produrrò suoni legandosi alle note che sostituiscono i numeri creando così un numero vastissimo di combinazioni.

Susan Philipsz’s proposal is an aural clock. The clock will stand as a monument to time: past, present and future. It will comprise of twelve digits like any clock but each of the digits will represent a tone from the twelve tones of the musical scales. The sounds of ‘Station Clock’ will be made by the population of Birmingham and be produced in collaboration with the Birmingham Conservatoire. The tones will sound very low overnight and will be fuller sounding during the day, culminating in a large chorus at noon. For this 1:25 scale version the clock will sound every five minutes instead of every hour.
