5 voor 12 (Time waits for no one)

Dear Insider,

I am experimenting with my alarm clock collection. It is an on-going project, and I am not sure where it is going to end. This causes an eternal need for alarm clocks; so if you have a spare one, please donate!

Every time when I find an alarm clock, for example in a second hand store, I make a copy of it. This copy is made of transparent plastic, but the real copy is the shadow it forms when light falls trough the plastic. The shadows formed on the floor are like echoes of time.

You have this saying in Dutch: “5 minutes before 12”. It means that time is almost up. The clocks are ticking, time is passing and shadows are forming. What are you waiting for?
