Clock, Askew, ca. 1989
This is a Clock. It was designed by M&Co. It is dated ca. 1989 and we acquired it in 1994. Its medium is nickel-brushed steel, plastic, quartz movement. It is a part of the Drawings, Prints, and Graphic Design department.
The firm M & Co., founded by Timor Kalman, was known for its innovative use of images and type to create imaginative and witty designs. Although the numbers of the Askew Clock are jumbled, the clock still tells accurate time if the viewer reads the hands instead of the numbers. An oversized version of this clock appears on top of Red Square, an apartment building that M & Co. designed on Houston Street and Avenue A in New York City.
