Cornelia Parker describes her piece as the “shadow side of time” and says the project is a “dream come true”. Her new work is an exact working replica of the station’s iconic Dent Clock, except hers, suspended sixteen metres in front of the original, is the “negative” image being black, with white numerals and hands and the detail picked out in silver. Passengers arriving by train will see the original white clock “eclipsed” by the black one as they walk up the platform.
