Modern Times

Clocks serve for synchronization. They are used to coordinate different processes so that these mesh as smoothly as possible. Like the gears of a clock. Or of any other mechanical device.

Clocks are highly responsible for generating the pulse of the mechanical age. They induce their rhythm on everything; so they dominate our life more than normally known. We stick to their space — thinking that this is the most natural thing in the world.

Sometimes it appears as if we live just for the sake of the clocks and all the other machines. Their continual reproduction seems to be the ultimate reason for being.

This is quite typical for the space of a thing, for a space of knowledge. We cannot exist but inside of one. And none of them leaves us untouched.
