Alicia Eggert & Mike Fleming – Eternity (2010)
“Consisting of 30 electric clocks rear-mounted to a large sheet of white acrylic.
During the installation, the hour and minute hands of the clocks are aligned to spell the word ‘eternity’, and the clocks are plugged into a series of power strips on the floor.
The hands begin to move as soon as the switch on the last power strip is flipped, and the word almost immediately becomes a jumble of moving black lines. 
‘Eternity’ does not reappear until the hour hands return to their original positions twelve hours later, and even then, it lasts a mere split second.”
