ClockClock 24 at MoMA store New York
“Fall / Winter”
Within an installation inspired by the de- and re-constructive effect of elapsed time, Stockholm based artist duo Humans since 1982 are celebrating one year of collaboration with MoMA store New York.
Simply titled “Fall / Winter”, the installation refers to the decomposition that comes with aging, but also it hints to the potential of emergence, reconstruction and hope that a new cycle or season can bring. The essential part of the installation “Fall / Winter”, which is on show from 7th August - 5th September in the windows of Manhattan's MoMA store, are two models in white and black from the series ClockClock 24 and a pile of fallen clock hands that resemble fallen leaves in autumn, respectively a pile of snow in winter.
Twenty-four clocks come together to tell a collective story in one singular digital display. ClockClock 24 recontextualises time through an ingenious marriage of analogue and digital.
Part kinetic sculpture, part functional timepiece, ClockClock 24 is limited to 950 pieces and produced with true dedication in Humans since 1982’s workshop in Sweden and is currently available in the US exclusively through the MoMA store New York and on the new project website, www.clockclock.com.
Title: "Fall / Winter"

Date: 7th August - 5th September, 2017
Humans since 1982 are Per Emanuelsson (b. 1982, Sweden) and Bastian Bischoff (b. 1982, Germany). Since meeting as postgraduate students at HDK Göteborg in 2008, the duo have pushed boundaries across art and design to produce works that defy easy categorisation. Through experiential installations and provocative object-making, Humans since 1982 explore themes of privacy, religious symbolism, preservation, and time. Their work manages to be logical with a healthy dose of escapism.
