Parker: Time Switch

Time Switch Series No. 1: Time Switch, archival inkjet print, edition 10, image size 13.5" h x 10.4" w, 2010

Text from accompanying artist book:

A box that once housed a control device for electrical equipment. A switch may also be a twig that one waves back and forth, like the arms of this person sweeping across the clock face.

Paragon: 1540s, from M.Fr. paragon “a model, pattern of excellence” (15c.), from It. paragone, originally “touchstone to test gold” (early 14c.), from paragonare “to test on a touchstone, compare”

May this figure, master of his time, serve as a model.
