- beads of time -



2-channel video installation, no sound, loop, variable dimensions




The video installation shows a male hand using a black/white Islamic prayer bead - Tesbhi - with 99 stones.

Since the beads are fingered in an automatic manner, they      allow the user to keep track of how many prayers have been said with a minimal amount of conscious effort. In various cultures prayer beads are used to mark the repetition of chants, medita- tion or for passing time.
