in situ, yellow paint on floor

This piece is part of a collection of works along with Time Piece (the mysterious island), Time Piece (UTC -10h) and the publication 35°60’S, 150°38’ W.

The works relocate the passing of time on Ernest-Legouvé Reef, that was discovered in the beginning of the 20th century, near the location of the fictitious Lincoln island of Jules Verne’s book The Mysterious Island. Ever since the reef is reported in many atlases, even though it doesn’t appear to exist anymore.

Dial (the mysterious island) is an horizontal dial drawn the way it would be on the island.
