24 Hour Movie Clock - Playing With Time

Not very many people would have thought up this project. And few of those would actually execute it. But Christian Marclay has. He's put together a movie made up of thousands of film clips which, collectively, become a 24 hour clock.

Here are three videos on this.

The first a news report.

The second a 3 minute segment of the movie itself.

The third, asks Christian himself about the work.

I haven't seen much more of this that you. But this has to make viewers think about how important clock time is in movies, which roughly reflect our lives. I wonder what venue in Anchorage could show this for 24 hours a day.  Bear Tooth?  Museum?  Out North?

Thanks L for the tip.
