Excerpt from an email received today:

"At the exhibition we would like to reproduce the image of the male figure with which you describe the mechanism of The Timepiece of Humanity and present an audio version of your text. This image together with the architecture of the exhibition will be able to better present the different projects of the artists and to unify them conceptually."
