Timestamp is a simple reminder of our changing relationship to time and it’s measurement. Fichter has produced a rubber ink stamp reading “time” and instructs the collector to stamp it on the wrist—the former location of many a wrist watch, since replaced by the ubiquitous cell phone. Signed & numbered.
