nicolas le moigne: public clock

time displayed is 6:01

designed for the city of geneva, nicolas le moigne‘s public clock tells the time through words. the letters change through a rotary system which spells out the correct time on the clock. the simple timepiece blends in with the architecture, aligned along the stone detailing of the wall in which it is installed.
