time. measure, number and rule. rhythm and beat. synchronization. but what if clocks run differently? if they get out of synch, stop, get rid of the regime of time zones, world time, standard time? what time do they show? and how will those come together, who – knowingly or not – set their time according to them? is it possible that in the end chance provides the only key to synchronize these times from time to time?
RANDOM TIME RADIO examines this complex and at the same time adopts it. its starting point is an on-site research, locating clocks and other timers that are not or not anymore in synch with standard time. together with further time pieces and timers they feed into and become part of an alternate clockwork which in turn uses the medium of radio to the listeners to allow temporary synchronizations with alternate times.
RANDOM TIME RADIO is a temporary mechanism of the TIME BENDING CLOCK, installed for a measured time in halle as part of the ADDICTED2RANDOM radio art festival.
