This is the first piece i ever programmed.
I was facsinated by the idea that art could be, in essence entirely unique.
You think of art being a static thing, but what if art was about the present moment. What if art could always be about the present moment, what if the world could decide the outcome of art.
My work is about the present so how else can I explore this without first addressing time.
What is time.
In this piece, the hours of the days are one colour, minutes another. The program creates a random pattern by telling the time. In doing so it creates a pattern that tells the time using the number of dots, yet creates a new pattern. A new pattern that has never been seen before.
A pattern that will not repeat itself for the next 50 million years.
We are all unique in the present moment, and we will continue to be so for the rest of time.
My time is just as valuable as yours, because it’s being spent at the same rate.
The market for time.

The artwork comprises of Thomas Webb’s original invention, the digital infinity mirror, and mixture of LED and mirror.
After powering on the display, you can use the provided bluetooth remote to access the display settings and search for your wi-fi network if needed. Once connected the display will automatically connect each time it is powered on.
the display uses 1 x UK power sockets to run.
The mirror display comes with a flat wall mount. It requires 4-6 included screws to be inserted into the wall to mount the bracket. The display then slots into the wall mount bracket and sits flush on the wall with no gap.
Depending on usage, the display can last over 10 years. If any of the technology becomes faulty it can be repaired or replaced. Once you purchase the artwork you own the digital simulation and this can be transferred from a damaged mirror display to a working one.
No, you cannot purchase the individual program to run on your own device. However, once you purchase an edition, you own the code and program, allowing it to be kept secure should your display become faulty. It can then be transferred to a repaired or new display.
All the mirror displays come with a 5-year display burn guarantee. The program is yours forever, and is secured by the estate in digital format for you. Should your display need repair or replacement the program can be transferred.
Yes, the display mirrors can be sold on, each piece comes with a digital certificate which can be transferred from party to party.
Each artwork is encoded with an encryption key and stamped. This is tied to a digital certificate that is hosted online, allowing only the owner of the artwork to transfer ownership.
All parts of the digital mirror display can be replaced. If the mirror is damaged, a new mirror can be ordered.
