Summary:
Recently, for an exhibition in Los Angeles at Blum & Poe, I exhibited a row of glass vessels positioned on the floor of the gallery in an exact north-south line. Each vessel contained water from the Pacific Ocean that I collected by sailing to the longitude line that divides the Pacific time zone and the Alaska time zone, 127.5 degrees west of Greenwich, England. I wanted to materialize this imaginary line that

Abstract:

Recently, for an exhibition in Los Angeles at Blum & Poe, I exhibited a row of glass vessels positioned on the floor of the gallery in an exact north-south line. Each vessel contained water from the Pacific Ocean that I collected by sailing to the longitude line that divides the Pacific time zone and the Alaska time zone, 127.5 degrees west of Greenwich, England. I wanted to materialize this imaginary line that determines spatial and temporal coordination, and to displace it by some 400 nautical miles. I imagine the line existing in neither zone, being outside of standardized time. The vessels are small enough to fit into your hand, so you can hold them--rather than the line holding you.--David Horvitz.

I found an hourglass somewhere in upstate New York and broke it open, measured the sand, then used the sand as material for three unique hand-blown vases. Each was made with one hour's worth of sand, as defined by the hourglass I had found.--Alexander Provan.
