Reel Time: Christian Marclay talks The Clock with Charlie Rose

In this video, Christian Marclay sits down with Charlie Rose to discuss his career as an artist, and how he came to make his 2010 video The Clock, a 24-hour loop containing thousands of clips from film and television depicting the passage of time, synched to mark hours and minutes in realtime for the viewer. As Marclay notes, real life–sleeping, eating, and most of all waiting–appears in its most mundane forms, as depictions of time form a story about daily routines, duration, and the history and experience of film itself. Rose’s signature interview style plies a biography of celebration, as the artist defines his concept and process for what has become his best-known work. The Clock returns to LACMA’s Bing Theater this Saturday and Sunday, where it will screen in its entirety.

Also this weekend, For Your Art hosts the second iteration of its wildly popular Around the Clock: 24 Hour Donut City featuring coffee, free donuts, and readings of newly-commissioned essays on The Clock by the Los Angeles critics Andrew Berardini and Ed Schad Saturday at 5pm. You can download the essays here and here.
