Leap Seconds

Alistair McClymont


The series of photographs represents the 25 “leap seconds” that have so far been added to our current time count. “leap seconds” are occa- sionally added to our time to adjust for the discrepancy between earth and atomic time, caused by earth’s gradual loss of rotational speed. 

Alistair McClymont received his MA in sculpture from the Royal College of Art in 2005. His demonstrative and experimental works have been exhibited at the Art House Foundation london, Wyer Gallery london, and la Triennale de Milano, amongst others, and are part of permanent collections at Gibberd Garden and Credit Agricole.
