Janine Harrington

Janine explored our everyday relationship to time through two interrelated works in a disused Archway shop. The Human Clock was performed by a team of dancers who operated seconds, minutes, and hours with paper pages mimicking a digital clock as accurately as possible using only their own sense of time passing. In 10 Minutes participants were asked to gauge ten minutes of time without using a clock. A wall drawing of recorded times developed over the week ranging from five and a half minutes to almost twenty-five minutes.

The Human Clock was performed by Janine Harrington, Elisa Vassena, Fiona Millward, Elodie Escarmelle. Janine was commissioned i 2013 for A Million Minutes in partnership with Islington Council with funding from Arts Council England.
