This kinetic sculpture explores Albert Einstein's theory of relativity
as it relates to the passage of time. Multiple clocks are set to the same time
and positioned at different intervals from a central point.

The center axis is connected to a turntable, which is activated periodically.
As the exhibit progresses the clocks will become out of phase with one another.
