The Power Plant

American artist Christian Marclay’s The Clock (2010) is an ode to time and the cinema comprised of thousands of fragments from a vast range of films. Short clips featuring wristwatches, alarm clocks, countdowns, and other references to time and timepieces are edited together into a captivating illustration of virtually every minute of a day. Workshop participants will have the chance to make their own creative functioning clock to take home afterwards, including learning collage techniques using various artistic and found materials.

For children ages 8 – 12 and their younger siblings and adult companions.
Tours and workshops are led by artist-educator and Animateur at The Power Plant Anna Bouzina and her artist-educator assistant Marina Guglielmi.
