This interactive video sculpture about the physicality of time features 10 video-projected clocks hanging motionless in a room. As the viewer winds up a crank, the clocks come to life, their hands spinning out of control until they self-destruct in a variety of animations. Barcia-Colombo's work focuses on memorialization and, more specifically, the act of leaving ones imprint for the next generation. His video sculptures play upon this exigency in culture to chronicle, preserve and wax nostalgic, an idea that Barcia-Colombo renders visually by collecting human beings (alongside cultural archetypes) as scientific specimens. Barcia-Colombo was a 2012 TED fellow and has exhibited his work at such places as the Elga Wimmer Gallery, the 92Y Tribeca and 3rd Ward in New York, and the Yerba Buena Arts Center in San Francisco. Admission is free and the public is invited. For more information call 410-548-2547 or visit
