Gnomon

The title of the show refers to the arm of the sundial that casts a shadow, always making it possible to tell the time. It also refers to a novel by Nick Harkaway, set in a future of distributed surveillance democracy that ultimately goes awry.
 
The reference fittingly propels O’Flynn’s work past pop and settles it in the company of cultural near-future imagineers. From the Greek gnomon, translating as ‘one that knows or examines’ – Gnomon reflects O’Flynn’s perceptive anxiety about our collective fast-pace toward an apocalypse and hints at an existence beyond it.

Participating: Norman O`Flynn
