I have created five new watch sculptures that are currently on display at Phillips de Pury and La Scatola Gallery. Each watch is a one off. See the pictures and video of them moving below.


Love and Protest, 2011 (Detail)


Love and Protest, 2011
In these times of peaceful protest in the face of armed repression, a protester and soldier kiss.


UC Davis Protest, 2011
I find it disturbing when people in positions of power abuse it and lose any sense of humanity. I was shocked to see the footage of the pepper spraying of people sitting in a peaceful protest at UC Davis. I felt a need to capture this incident in time.

Captured, 2011
CCTV cameras and three people photographing and videoing. Everyone is capturing everyone.


Comfortably Oblivious, 2011
Here two people fail to give up their seat to an elderly woman with walking stick and bags walking round and round.

Brilliant concepts and execution- like all great art and design, especially the ones that portray real emotion. You’ve captured those moments in time so beautifully, figuratively and literally and given them eternal life… or at least as long as the life of watch batteries. Just wonderful, Dominic!

Thanks Tim, though these are mechanical watches, no batteries needed.

And why didn’t I guess that you would have already considered and reconciled that! ; ) Perfect, as usual.
