‘a million times’ by humans since 1982

 

developed by stockholm-based humans since 1982, ‘a million times’ is an installation designed for victor hunt that is madefrom 288 special two-handed analogue clocks – powered by 576 electrical engines to drive the minute and hourhands independently – which collectively create a giant display which visually expresses the time digitally. the 576 individual rotating hands to form extensive texts and elaborate customized patterns and graphics. the expansive timepiece is a follow-up to the studio’s previous smaller-scale ‘clock clock’ which designboom covered during its development and completion. locked in its functionality to show the time, the natural characteristics of its two arms constantly dance in slow motion around the center – unveiling hidden figurative qualities without denying its primary purpose. ‘a million times’ will be presented at design days dubai 2013.
