The Clock Clock White is a fully functioning clock that synchronizes the digital and analog world and makes you gasp each moment it shows the time.
The Clock Clock White is a time keeping device as well as a work of art. It consists of 24 pristine white, circular-shaped wall clocks with only the minute and the hour hand. The hands harmonize to foretell the time of the day. Seems pretty usual, but it actually isn’t; the hands of these 24 wall clocks align together to create giant digits that resemble the numbers of a digital clock.
Each digit of The Clock Clock White is made of 6 circular wall clocks; 3 clocks per column. When this device is ready to showcase time, the hands of each clock rotate and halt at a mark. The second hand is left out in this construction.
This movement of the clocks hands is not unlike dance choreography and reminds me of a contemporary/ ballet dance routine where dancers execute planned movements. To me, The Clock Clock White is an elaborate dance performance seen from the top.
Humans Since 1982 is the architect of this piece of work. They had created a previous model that was based on a similar principle: The amalgamation of digital and analog. The previous piece is very analogous in design and construction too. The individual clocks used for the older version were square-shaped though and mounted on a table. The new version can be hung from a wall.
A quick look at this studio’s work makes one easily understand its fascination with merging digital and analog technologies together. Their previous work includes a wall cabinet with LED lights, chandelier made of surveillance cameras, etc.
Humans Since 1982 used screen printed dials that contained electrical and mechanical components of the wall piece. David Fox, an Australian engineer, helped in the construction of The Clock Clock White.
