Four wall-mounted sculptures act as something akin to a rock tumbler, accelerating the process of daily wear and tear on objects donated by the public, gradually doing away with the associations and memories surrounding them. Containing special combinations of these donated specimens of human accumulation, and curated for maximum interaction, these kinetic sculptures move both human and object forward in time. With speeds ranging from 1/10 RPM to 3.5 RPM this installation of rotary devices both measures time and symbolizes its passage.
