“Simple Present” is a collection of 35 clocks exhibited at the Masa Project. The clock mechanisms are fixed horizontally on the table and each is labeled with the name of a clock in a public or commercial space in Istanbul. Those include clock towers, shopping centers, hospitals, small shops, restaurants, train stations, mosques, etc… Each clock is either preset to run synchronized with the clock it refers to, or set to stand still at the exact time as the clock it refers to in case that corresponding city clock is no longer functioning.
