EightHourDay reflects upon Clerkenwell's incredible 18th-century-history of clockmaking, its streets then bustling with workmen from the various subdivisions of the trade. The form and play on perspective references the illusive behaviour of time, and its eight dials & absence of hands are a nod to the 'short-time movement' (8-hour workday), now warped by modern life.
