Parker: Time Switch

Time Switch Series No. 12: Watch, archival inkjet print, edition 10, image size 6.0" h x 8.0" w, 2010

Text from accompanying artist book:

This wristwatch originally belonged to my grandfather, David S. Parker. When he died, my father, David A. Parker, gave it to me.
On March 8, 2005, the battery that my grandfather had installed stopped.
I took this commemorative photograph with my backup timepiece: my mobile phone.
I now wear the watch every day, and often think of my body occupying the space that my grandfather once did.
