Carnal Clock (1969)

A series of unique timepieces consisting of metal boxes that measure 5 feet x 5 feet each, with a silkscreened, mirrored Plexiglas face composed of photos by Rauschenberg, which include genitals, natural forms, and other images characteristic of the artist. A timing mechanism and electrical lights illuminate the hours and minutes; at noon and midnight, the clocks are fully lit.
