Australian artist Rebecca Baumann has recently unveiled this new work, entitled Automated Colour Field, which was commissioned by the Australian Centre for Contemporary Art. Composed of 100 flip-clocks, the sculpture-cum-performance piece endures an endless loop as the coloured boards flip at random, mixing up the visual layout of the piece and creating a work that is in a constant process of self-renewal.

It’s as if it has a life of it’s own, and is completely entrancing to watch as the boards flip round spontaneously (see the video below!) I find that I have to stare at one board obsessively until it changes – and even though that means not blinking for a while the satisfaction is like no other!
