The Clockwork was an interactive TV Studio that took shape in the retro-futuristic stage House of Trouble (H.O.T.) by artist Stephanie Stein. The Clockwork invited the public to speak out on the notion of transformation. The speeches were recorded and streamed live at the fair and on the TV channel Souvenirs From Earth. The Clockwork approaches the speech in the widest sense of the word, as declamations can be sung, silenced, or translated into body movements. The speech became performance, became manifest.
