Each of the clocks is labelled with a specific city's name - Sao Paulo, New York, Lisbon, Cape Town, Baghdad, Delhi, Hong Kong, Tokyo and Sydney - and each clock is set to run as per the time zones these cities are located in. The video image of a face, expressionless, but not emotionless, travels from screen to screen, as if a person were really walking or being carried between and through the terminals. Words which stand for states of feeling - EPIPHANY, ANXIETY, DUTY, GUILT, INDIFFERENCE, AWE, FATIGUE, NOSTALGIA, ECSTASY, FEAR, PANIC, REMORSE - are inscribed on the face of the clocks, in place of the numerals for the hours. The face travelling through the terminals evokes the feeling of travelling through timezones, crossing and recrossing the date line through the networked global day, and traversing a complex emotional landscape, across cities, across time, and expressive of a moment of networked global subjectivity that we all are beginning to live today.
