Christian Marclay's 'The Clock' wins Gold Lion at Venice Biennale

Christian Marclay's 'The Clock' has been awarded the Venice Biennale's Golden Lion award, (LA Times),
which seems more than justified for what is clearly a contemporary masterpiece. The Clock is compelling as art and as cinema and useful, I found, as a time-keeping device.  [The Guardian]
"The Clock" is an art installation piece that uses snippets from films and television to keep real 24-hour time, has been acquired this year by the L.A. County Museum of Art.
