Kenji Nakahashi

In Difference in Time, Japanese Conceptual artist Kenji Nakahashi arranged and photographed two analogue clocks to make a statement on the subjective experience of time. The clocks are separated by a distance of one foot. A diagram overlaid on the image explains that although the two clocks appear to display the same time, they are actually (due to the distance between them) .00067 seconds apart.
