Kenji Nakahashi

In Time (B), Japanese Conceptual artist Kenji Nakahashi arranged and photographed two clocks to make a statement on the subjective experience of time. The two clocks sit on a scale. One, set to 12:15, appears to be heavier than the clock reading 12:04. The absurd implication is that one time carries more weight than another.
