A found stripped down flipclock endlessly cycles through the 24 hour period at varying speeds. At 3pm a random audio clip is activated, referencing the time of the murder scene at the Jack Tar Hotel in the Francis Ford Coppola's seminal 1970's sound-focused film The Conversation. The audio clips sourced from the film are the recorded overheard in various states of technological clarity.
