'NOW' is a 3-D sculpture featuring over 1300 plus clocks. The three wooden block letters will be 12' high and encased in clocks. These have been gathered over the past 46+ months and continue to be gathered until Sept. 24, 2014 when the sculpture is to be completed. The clocks are of all sorts, shapes, and size; a valued pocket watch, a 1940s alarm clock, an oak mantel time piece, or a inexpensive 'Hello Kitty' plastic wall clock. The number of clocks and size of the sculpture is meant to be imposing. Its purpose is to create questions and stir wonder in the hearts of the viewers.
