maarten baas signs 3 movies speaking of time passing, shot in the netherlands between february and march 2009. he chooses the cinema language to re-shape a clock collection composed by three models. from the old style analog-alarm to the digital time counter, baas animates the clocks with a theatre mechanism with true and living lancets – by involving actors to sign the time. 3D prototypes are shown together with the movies and work as rough description for the new baas’ models of time counters. the clock videos will be sold on an external hard drive (HD quality) which can be played on any screen. all movies will be numbered and signed by maarten baas (prices on request).
