'Imagined Time' is a collaborative video work of Michael Wurstbauer and Christina Reenberg Jensen, a recording of a public clock with missing arms over the course of a whole day in the form of a time-lapse animation.
This clock was the first thing Christina noticed on a visit to Korsør, which is situated on a building opposite the towns' bus terminal. It was part of the branding of the former tenants' of the building, another bank. However, as years passed and another bank moved into the building the clock no longer showed the correct time – people came into the present bank and complained. Incapable of alternating the time the two arms of the clock were taken off. Christina photographed the clock and added a white background for a separate work of hers. A few images were made with the camera mounted on a tripod. When choosing the best image and switching between them on the computer screen Michael and Christina noticed the clock was still working. What there was left of the clocks' arms changed position from one picture to the next. The idea for making visible what otherwise cannot be noticed came about. The camera was set up and programmed to take images every 5 minutes for a whole day.
