Perhaps it is the dearth of stars in the city sky that has us wishing upon clocks. There is something serendipitous about a clock face with all of its numbers the same or in consecutive order: a brief moment where it feels like anything is possible and wishes made are wishes that can come true. WISH|CLOCK suspends twelve such moments and provides another for the purpose of harnessing the synchronicity of time to tempt us towards wishing. Look for the thirteen clocks: all of the numbers are the same and it’s time to make a wish!
