    Exhibition: THE SOCRATES ANNUAL, 2017

    Street Clocks, 2017

    Custom-made street clocks 55 x 23 x 13 inches and 79 x 23 x 13 inches
    Swanson pairs two street clocks of contrasting heights that correspond to her and her partner’s statures—4 feet and 6 feet. By adapting clocks typically found in communal metropolitan spaces to function as portraiture, the artist challenges assumptions about normative size in the public sphere while also producing a whimsical image.
