tick, tock

(ILLUSTRATION: SHWETA MALHOTRA) Tick, tock, the AD clock cover is a specially created artwork that changes meaning, not time, with just a slight movement of the magazine. The interactive lenticular, titled A Short Essay on Sleep, is by Raqs Media Collective, and is the masterpiece of what everyone now knows is my favourite issue of the year.Raqs Media Collective might just be the most massive artists you have never heard of. I knew them as having previously been shortlisted for the uber-prestigious Fourth Plinth at Trafalgar Square, and for having curated the 11th Shanghai Biennale.

It makes art, produces performances, writes, curates exhibitions, and occupies a unique position at the intersection of contemporary art, philosophical speculation and historical enquiry. “The word ‘raqs’ in several languages denotes an intensification of awareness and presence attained by whirling, turning, being in a state of revolution.
