Giant Clock On East River Counts Down Donald Trump’s Term

Clock


A huge clock — which shows the days and hours left until Donald Trump’s term is up — was mounted in Queens at the end of June, Brandon Stosuy, editor for the art-focused website The Creative Independent, installed the piece with artist Matthew Barney and several other collaborators.

The group erected the huge clock during a comedy event they organized at Barney’s Long Island City waterfront studio. The sign — located right near Gantry Plaza State Park in Hunters Point — is visible from Manhattan, with riders heading to the new Long Island City ferry landing getting a perfect view.

According to DNA Info Stosuy told them, “It’s a reminder that a lot [of] people can’t wait until it’s over, as well as just a reminder. It’s also a bit like a durational test — a reminder to try to hold on until the end”.

They intend to keep the clock running until the end of Trump’s term, “but if his term ended earlier than planned, it’s programmed to jump to zero.” Stosuy added.
