music stands, mirrors and clock mechanisms; 170cm x 600cm x 400cm
for Talk gallery on the sixth floor of the Nicholas Building in the
centre of Melbourne, Spector drew
on the spectacular view from the gallerys windows over St Kilda Road
and on the external sounds coming up from the commotion below. Forty
music stands holding mirrors and clock mechanisms stood in regimental
format facing the windows of the space. While the mirrors engaged
in a visual dialogue with the outside view, the sound of the clock
mechanisms second hands tapping regularly against the metal of the
stand remained in dialogue with the sounds of the outside city life.
As the stands were relatively close together, viewers had to be especially
mindful of their bodies as they entered this space.
