»CCKW (counter clockwise)«, 2001. CCKW is an istallation based on a backwards running clock which hangs above a water surface. By Szabolcs KissPal.


»Big Crunch Clock« (2005) is a digital clock that counts backwards the five billion years left before the sun explodes. It has 20 numbers: from the billions of years to the tenths of a second, and it is designed to be able to function with solar energy – the same energy that will one day destroy it. By Gianni Motti.


»Cancelled Count«, 2003. The Cancelled Count clock is mounted on a motor which runs counter-clockwise at the speed of one rpm. Both the hour hand and numbers spin backwards while the second hand, which runs clockwise at one rpm, remains static.


»Forwards and Reverse« (2005) is a backwards running clock which is displayed beside a mirror. When viewed in the mirror, the numerals and clock motion run forwards in a coherent manner. By James Hopkins.
