Why is an abandoned space eerie? It's all about time, the passing of it, the seeming halt of it. The clock is a familiar representative of time, usually of the movement of it, and here it is in a non-living area.
And that is the best way to go about things. I must admit I am getting sick and tired of how open a lot of the Canadian explorers are about naming locations in public forums and art sharing sites. I have seen many great locations ruined because of young kids trashing places and spray painting graffiti or scrappers steeling all the copper. Sorry just had to rant about this.
