The artists behind the FAAD Temporary Contemporary art installation project were at Sheridan College today (Tuesday September 15th, from 12:00 to 1:30 PM) for a public lecture and free pizza lunch describing the inspiration behind The Museum of Broken Watches to Sheridan faculty and students. Both Rhonda Weppler and Trevor Mahovsky discussed their previous art installations and the origins of the creativity and innovation behind this year’s Temporary Contemporary project.
The glass-fronted case that is part of this year’s Temporary Contemporary art project was installed today at Sheridan College. Titled “Museum of Broken Watches,” the art installation by artists Rhonda Weppler and Trevor Mahovsky will feature a unique public clock containing 720 donated analog watches each stopped at a different time with all possible hour and minute combinations shown. The watches are currently being collected from the Sheridan community and will eventually be displayed in individually-lit compartments. The lights will be controlled to highlight only the watch showing the current time.
