Too often machines dictate our rhythm. It makes us lose our inner rhythm, divide our mind from our body and kill our intuition.
This is Time
Based on Joseph Kosuth’s One and three chairs (1965), dial of this clock is a textual representation (definition) of the time it measures. But how is time itself defined and what is the difference between the way the clock measures it and the natural, human perception of time.
Every Second Matters
In constant hurry, modern human feels like hours pass like minutes.
One twin lives on the Earth, while the other travels with the speed of light. For him time runs much slower than for his brother on the Earth. This clock shows astronaut how fast runs the time for his twin brother on the Earth.
Twin paradox results in Einstein’s special relativity, where the time for a passenger traveling with the speed of light runs much slower than on the Earth. This clock shows the passenger how fast are running the days on the Earth.
Time is not Linear
Our perception of linear time is as absurd as this linear dial on a wall clock.
You can use this clock also after the end of our civilization. Well, almost…
Don’t Have Time
Do you know anybody who has time this days? This clocks solve that absurd with even bigger absurds.
A 24 hours dial instead of the 12 hours AM and PM stuff.
Sitting by the river we realize how the time passes and that there will never run the same river beside us again. But that doesn’t mean, that we must constantly fear to miss something.
Unheimlich is a German word for Creepy, which Sigmund Freud often used in his work.
