Handheld documentation of this installation using 39 metronomes, by UK artist Martin Creed.

The installation is activated each day at 11:00 and 14:00 by gallery attendants. The metronomes are each set to a slightly different tempo spanning the range of possible settings for the identical devices. Bring spring-driven, the metronomes all eventually stop at different times after about 2 hours of ticking...
