Originally shown as installations, Feyrer's films show the defaced visage of several time-keepers—stripped of most composite numbers—and clock faces that read an accusatory "WHO CARES?" as if to scold the hegemony of a schedule. As Feyrer seizes time-based media to show its mechanism manipulated, coming to a slapstick stand-still, they offer a notion of time with a funny facelift.

Julia Feyrer (b. 1982, Lkwungen Territory, Victoria, BC) is a filmmaker and artist who lives and works on the unceded lands of the Tsleil-Waututh, Skxwú7mesh and Musqueam. They graduated in 2010 with a Meisterschülerin from the Städelschule in Frankfurt, Germany. Julia is also the co-editor of the audiozine Spoox and author of a half dozen artist books published by Perro Verlag.
