This is an accurate timepiece made from gunpowder. It shows a 12 hour clock (showing both night and day) and runs on a 24 hour loop. Hours, Minutes and Seconds are exactly marked by a series of small explosions.

As an art medium, Gunpowder has a special relevance as it was something normal in the daily lives of soldiers preparing to leave Folkestone to go to war.
