A FOND CHILDHOOD MEMORY...
EVERY YEAR MAX CAME TO MY VILLAGE WITH THE FAIR.
IT TOOK FOREVER TO SET UP HIS GLEAMING GOODIES - EACH PIECE
ATTACHED TO A STRING.
I WATCHED FOR HOURS OBSERVING THE FACES AND THEIR REACTIONS
AS THEY PULLED...
THERE WAS ALWAYS A WONDERFUL SURPRISE AT THE END OF MAX'S STRINGS.

'Somewhere in Time and Space'
"These pieces are visual musings on time and memories...
-our need to answer the big questions, unlock mysteries
-how our lives are so short on the continuum of time and space
-how we spend our time, how we value it
-how time can appear to move at different speeds
-how we savour our memories
-how memories are triggered - how one can be instantly transported
back through time by a scent, an image, a piece of music etc
-the need to make the most of time by making what we do meaningful
-the pleasure or regret of decisions made and the randomness of what
we call "fate".
The parts of a clock, with names like "all or nothing" and "escapement" can so easily be related to the complexities of our lives. It's as though we have a constant ticking in the background, reminding us of our short stay here on Earth. These items, which only function when making up a whole, are analogous of all the facets that make up our lives, as well as our place in the bigger picture - be it our planet or the universe - in which we are very small, but not insignificant, parts."
