Objects of Time - Kevin Birth at the Frick
On a recent holiday in New York, I was lucky enough to meet up with Kevin Birth, an anthropologist at CUNY Queens, who does fascinating research on time and clocks. The Frick Collection currently has an exhibition of clocks and watches called Precision and Splendor and Kevin was generous enough to give my partner and I, and another colleague a guided tour of the collection. It was absolutely fascinating, and so I was really pleased to see that his lecture on the exhibition is available to veiw through FORA.tv. Highly recommended.
