Echoes In Time by Rathsi Echoes In Time by Rathsi
#2 Pencil on 14'x17' paper

Narrative: The Raven listens carefully to the Earth's distortions as time begins its downward treck, back to it's beginnings where all things will become one ... only to begin anew. All of the elements are being drawn in to the vortex, including time itself. 

The backward clock is changing shape as the immense gravitational pull of the vortex is causing it to become misshapen. Even though the picture of the hourglass is static, the sand with in it is not. The Rosetta Stone is a bridge of voices from distant past, the cuneiform has yet to exhale a murmur and will remain forever silent.


This project started off as an idea for a wall mounted clock. Just for grins, the upper part of the Rosetta stone contains some of the lyrics from the Al Jolson song “Swanee,” while the lower Greek component of the Rosetta stone, contains part of the Beatles lyrics from “Blackbird”. There is also a satellite dish on the side of a building.

Eventually a backward movements clock will be installed into the time piece. The end result will be a functional clock mounted in a picture frame. (more to come on this)
