The clock’s name was inspired by the Lars von Trier film “Melancholia”.‎ He recognized that Saturn is the planet that represents melancholia, and, searching the internet, he suddenly came across a web page about cosmic collisions.‎ In Lars von Trier’s works there is always something to elevate matters beyond the trivial!
I’d wanted to create a clash that which is romantic and stylized and that which resembles some form of reality.‎ The empty rituals of reality – my manifestation of postmodernism is a symbol of a fleeting epoch.‎ Longing for reality.‎ Longing is true.‎ While there may be no truth at all to long for, the longing itself is true.‎ Just like pain is true.‎ We feel it inside.‎ It’s a part of reality.‎ This clock is a breath of melancholia.‎ We are often longing for something, and when in a state of longing, you can’t lose anything, for you have it not.‎

Like the film Melancholia, my clock also consists of two parts.‎ The minute hand is called ‘Justine’, and she deals with her melancholic sister – the hour hand ‘Claire’.‎ And just as Lars von Trier’s planet, Melancholia, devours the Earth, my minute hand will devour the hour hand twice a day.‎ Twice a day the minute and hour hands are at the top together.‎ But slowly, melancholia descends between them like a curtain she has set in motion.‎ It looks like the "sisters" truly suffer from doubts.‎ Twice a day you see them meet and talk about their experiences of being alone.‎ They have different tempos.‎ But they have been two, and, for a brief moment they become one.‎ Alone in the Universe.‎ It’s a scary and sobering thought.‎ As when you see pictures from outer space, you shiver with the sense that we’re awfully alone.‎
