It's about time is a functioning sundial that examines the changing meaning of the ‘Black Power’ fist – here depicted in an Armani suit wearing a Gucci watch. The artist is exploring the legacy of the 1960s struggle for economic, civic and social equality and how it has been translated by the Me, X and Y generations.
