Tauba Auerbach plays in a phenomenological way with readability and abstraction, permeability and solidity – phenomena that she unifies within surfaces and volumes. Here in her clockwork multiple she has compressed the traditional clock plate with Roman figures from I-XII into figures from I – XXIII plus a nil position representing figure XXIV.
