Attila Csörgő's installations are inspired by mathematical and physical problems. Investigating the relationship between the plane, time and space, he throws doubt on the mechanisms of perception.
In Clock-work, Csörgő plays with concepts of the representation of time, presenting its metaphorical images as a result of a mathematical precision of construction. The work consists of a device constructed from simple materials, equipped with a ticking second-marking mechanism and two shadows projected by the device onto the wall. The shadows that present the construction from different perspective combine into the shape of a circle and a horizontal figure of eight. These immobile, geometric symbols of time (going the full circle and infinite) contrast with the dynamics of the functioning of the clock mechanism.
