    The ‘Real Time’ series ‘Grandfather Clock Veneer’ is Baas’s artist’s proof from his second series of three different grandfather clocks, all which incorporate video. The cabinet is a modern interpretation of the classic grandfather clock, but the clock face is in reality a video screen presentation of a grandfather, carefully erasing and redrawing the minute and hour hands on an analog face. The clock face is at the exact height that the actor would be if he were actually standing inside the clock.
