Artist's description:

Created from the casing of a Victorian eight-day clock and other vintage found objects this assemblage is about observation, the watched and the watcher and the devices employed. Using original pages from a 1914 dictionary, advertisements from a 1927 Photographic Almanac and a vintage doll’s head the piece may require more than a casual investigation on the part of the viewer. Not only is ‘Big Brother Watching You’ but the piece also invites an element of self observation and appreciation as well!

(SPOILER ALERT: beneath the Harlequin's feet is a highly polished
angled mirror in which you can read "BIG BROTHER IS WATCHING YOU" below which is your own image!)


The free-standing piece measures 490mm high by 282mm. The base has a depth of 175mm.

Another authentic artwork from the ‘Re-Imagined World of Colin Cadle’
