bell, aluminium electronic and mechanical component

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

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.

Time Piece (UTC -10h) strikes every full hour the time in the time zone where the mysterious island is located.
