A memento mori (Latin \"remember that you will die\") is an artistic or symbolic reminder of the inevitability of death.

The second Clockwork are photos of clocks. Augustinus wrote a whole long chapter in His Confessiones about the time. The time does not \'fit\' into the European civilization: we can not manipulate it. Clocks - in contradiction most of the machines - have can not manipulate their subject. All of them is a \'memento mori\', like the sun-clock of the Benedictiner Monastery of Pannonhalma. Its text: \'One of these hours will be your last one\'. Where do point the hands of the clocks? What mean a sign transformed by geometry?
