parallel of time clock

‘parallel of time clock’ by john leung (recycled plastic, chronometric mechanical parts, cable and glass) the parallel of time clock by john leung features two parallel clocks which create a series of forms as time progresses. the design was created to celebrate clarkehopkinsclarke architect’s 50th year anniversary. the design is based off a piece of clear glass with the minute hands on one side and the hour hands on the other. a series of cables is threaded on each one and as they rotate, two parallel clocks are created. the design aims to draw attention to the various speeds people experience time.

  • “how do you read the time”??
    A clock’s function must not be explained, otherwise it’s useless (imho).
