ABOUT

Growing Zeros (Digital Clock) is both a 24-hour-long film and a functioning clock.  It apparently shows a digital display, but its unitary numerical parts are made up of red blocks moved by human hands, flashing across the surface.  A simple idea, its effects are complex: conjuring the pre-history of film as popular spectacle, as well as the hidden labour behind modern digital marvels.
