61 / 60 : A PERFORMATIVE ACTION

On June 30, 2015 at 23:59:60 UTC, the 26th leap second will be added to our universal system of time. This correction will make the last minute of June sixty-one seconds long – bringing the revolution of our clocks back into synchronicity with the rotation of our planet.

To commemorate this occasion I shall be staging a one-second performative action in Times Square, New York City, occurring at precisely 19:59:60 EDT to correlate with the worldwide inclusion of the leap second in the UTC time system.

[It is advised anyone wishing to view the event live arrive at least 3 minutes prior, as the action will not be repeated. Exact location TBC.]
