The Warwickshire Dials

Bookmark and Share



Ever been to Warwick Arts Centre and glanced up to see what time it was?

If you have then you may have seen four intriguing clocks, each with a different area of the clock blocked off.

They are the work of Richard Wentworth, born in 1947, and were put over a set of stairs in 2000.

Ron likes them because they are an interesting way of forcing visitors to keep an eye on the clock.

He says: "The arts centre knew that time is important there - the start of theatre, dance, cinema or gallery events, and the time that people have to grab a coffee beforehand or during the interval.

"So they have conspired with the artist to make you work to work out what the time really is."
