“Real Time”, clock-movies by Maarten Baas

Event date: 22-04-2009 to 27-04-2009

Baas designs three movies speaking of time passing, shot and mounted in The Netherlands during February and March 2009, with the help of the Mondriaan Foundation.

Maarten Baas chooses the cinema language to re-shape a clock collection composed of three models. From the old style analog-alarm to the digital time counter, Maarten creates from zero the devices: from the interface to the internal and external “box”. Besides designing those, Baas animates the clocks with a theatre mechanism – with true and living lancets – by involving hundreds of actors to sign the time. 3D prototypes are shown together with the movies and will work as rough descriptions of Baas’ new models of time counters. The passing of the time within the clock is given by multitudes of people who – shot and screened in a true interval of 12 or 24 hours – allow visitors to assist to an unusual render of time passing.

C’N’C Costume National was created in 2004 by Ennio Capasa, also creative director of Italian brand Costume National. C’N’C Costume National makes a name for itself with its dynamic and modern style which finds its roots in a Rock & Roll aesthetic with a minimalist attitude.
