jesper jonsson: movement of a moment


‘movement of a moment’ clock by jesper jonsson

a clock without a face, ‘movement of a moment’ by swedish industrial designer jesper jonsson
uses changes in light to depict the time.

in the piece, an hour and minute hand hidden at the back of the clock cause breaks in the clock’s ambient glow.
thus the time is read in the conventional method, but cued by a more subtle visual,
meant to reference the rhythm of natural daylight.

‘movement of a moment’ is on exhibition at the stockholm furniture fair 2011 in ‘the collector‘,
which features the work of graduate students at the HDK school of design and crafts.


the time is read by the breaks in the light
