Music & Words: Martin Bussey
Photography: Laurel Turton

Timeless Figure is about Time. This complete performance sees J.B.Joyce (Peter Edge) making clocks in Shropshire in 1680. He moves through a world changing with dizzying speed, portrayed through Laurel Turton’s stunning merged and overlaid images. These challenge our assumptions of Time’s visual impact. Shropshire clockwork merges into urban, rural and seascapes in the United States. Joyce reflects on ‘Time, a maniac’ in Tennyson’s words set against a frantic marimba. Passengers pass under Joyce’s Liverpool clock to escape Irish Famine or flee mill work to holiday. Marconi’s single radio signal makes Joyce realise that ‘Time stands still’.

All ages (mostly adults)
