Inside the little area to the left of the clock face is a scene with two birds in front of some foliage.
No, this is not supposed to be a snow scene. That's years of accumulated dust! Both disgusting and oddly compelling. Anyway, I've taken about a hundred pictures of this clock trying to get a good picture of the clock face (reflective bubble glass/plastic=grrrr) and the clock as a whole itself. Here's a few of them.
Yes, I even put the clock in our tub to take some pictures. I'm not sure why, though I do love the weirdness of the photos. Anyway, the clock is the primary object I'm obsessing over right now as I try to put together this cover. But, it's not the only image/aesthetic cue. Here are a few others, some offered by Jane and others happened upon by myself.
|The True Artist Helps the World by Revealing Mystic Truths by Bruce Nauman|
|Close-up of part of the book cover for The Night Circus|
|Legend to Marcel Duchamp's The Large Glass|
|Umbrella cover from a Marimekko umbrella.|
|Still from opening sequence of The United States of Tara.|
Wish me luck.
