On Tuesday January 22 at 11.30am Joseph Gallivan interviews Mariana Tres, curator of the Society for Nebulous Knowledge, about the show "Celestial Clockwork." In her show at Chambers@916 Gallery, Tres presents the artefacts of 19th Century Astoria clockmaker and astronomer Herschel McShougle. In 1867 he envisioned the measure of time in a wholly unprecedented way. He set out to build a clock that would keep time for ten thousand years.
