when our feelings change, it also changes the way in which we perceive time. layla mehdi pour designs ‘sohpie’, an adjustable shape wall clock, consisting of two overlapping laser cut painted plywood surfaces with twelve lines each. the lower dial is attached to the clock mechanism, but the upper one can be easily rotated: this way you can get unexpected plays of shadows and different configurations of the object, which can be changed at any time. thus, the design has a different look, a new way of being seen, with each impulse or change of mood.
