The watchmaker is often used as a metaphor for God. And a teleological argument is one that contends that there must be a higher/divine power/intelligence that created our complex and intricate universe. From Wikipedia: "A teleological argument, or argument for design is an argument for the existence of God or a creator based on perceived evidence of order, purpose, design, or direction -- or some combination of these -- in nature. . . Teleology is the supposition that there is purpose or directive principle in the works and processes of nature."
Created for an exhibit in conjunction with the "Wines & Chimes" gala benefit at the National Watch & Clock Museum in Columbia, Pennsylvania. Dan and partner Shawn participated in creating new works along with 3 other local artists following an after hours tour of the museum. After weeks of creative block and countless discussions about the nature of time and coming up with common phrases about time, Dan's creativity finally sparked and kindled with enough "time" to finish seven pieces for the exhibition. "Cosmic Clock" came after the deadline and there are more in the works. "Toying with Time" will be an ongoing project!
