Carl von Linné developed a conceptual flower clock based on the chronobiological “inner clock" of plants, animals, and humans. He hypothesized a flower bed, considering that there are species of plants that bloom at specific times of day, aiming to provide daylong pollen and nectar. Andreas Duscha approaches the idea through the camera obscura as the origin of analogue photography, symbolising the “mirror image of the world". By exposing the plants of the flower clock for 24 hours, every print visualises a time bubble of a life depending on biological rhythms. Combinig the three variables of time, light, and movement, the prints show vivid dynamics, which may stand for the 24/7 rushes of the working world.
