THE BEGINNING OF THE END OF TIME
With "The Beginning of the End of Time" Markus Weisbeck showed new typographically-oriented sculptural work. His arrangement of poetic-word inventions and short stanzas both formally and conceptually addressed the context of time-based parameters.
As word collages like "April in a Day", "Spring for a Year" and "Moments out of Date" cross diverse definitions of time, they fragment experienced time and represent compositions that dovetail assumed meanings.
Formally, these works were created out of plastic material. Wall-mounted and made from layered plexiglass, the works also resulted in mediation on the time of their production..
The typefaces used were deliberately arranged so that the speed of reading favoured a slowing down of interpretation. Consequently, constructivist forms emerge, with time experienced as a space between words; time was only ever a state within reach.
An aspect of the installation included a video projection entitled "Hybrid Clock: Clock-App that integrates two established time-telling visual devices". It promoted a clock developed and patented by Weisbeck. Available for purchase from the iTunes Store, the clock formed a counterweight to other time-keeping devices, suggesting that the temporal dimension can never be grasped in its totality and immediate time is never guaranteed.
