Mechanical Clock

1981

8ft. x 4ft. x 2ft.

A modern, weight powered mechanical clock with a traditional mechanism.

This clock uses a "deadbeat" escapement to keep time. A small electric motor rewinds

the clock when the driving weight moves the bottom switch. Bicycle parts and found objects

have been adapted to create the clockwork.


Mechanical Clock is currently in the permanent collection of: Fondazione IDIS - Citta della Scienza onlus, Naples, Italy
