Exhibition: THE SOCRATES ANNUAL, 2017
Street Clocks, 2017
Custom-made street clocks
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.
