DORODESIGN LIKES: A Carpet Made from 4,000 Watches by Heidi Voet
Heidi Voet’s “Is six afraid of seven/ ’cause seven, eight, nine/ I’m about to lose the pieces I find” is an elaborate carpet installation woven together from over four thousand, multicolored watches all set to the exact time, creating a symphony of digital chimes.
Over the course of the exhibition, the watches will inevitably malfunction, losing their synchronicity and eventually sounding like an out of rhythm and out of tune orchestra.
The alarms were synchronized to chime in unison during a day, creating what she describes as a symphony of digital chimes. However, over time they inevitably fall out of sync and sound like a band out of tune. Her purpose is to show that the procession of time is constant, however as it marches on incessantly the result will be chaos and things falling apart.
