Space Time

Time signal stations synchronize their clocks to coordinated universal time, the international standard for timekeeping. No clock keeps coordinated universal time exactly because coordinated universal time is an average time, calculated with data collected from hundreds of atomic clocks located around the world. The accumulated time error of an analog radio controlled clock will be measured between synchronizations. A sensor will be used, that records the beat rate of the watch’s pulses.

Comprising several radio controlled clocks the Time-Space installation will make this inaccuracy audible with clocks, electronic oscillators and speakers.
