“Time is an illusion”
Most wall-clocks have the same basic shape: round. Also the same looking time-indication by numbers or stripes.
“MOCAP” steps away from the basic. It’s appearance leans more to a piece of conceptual art ,then to a basic time-telling clock. MOCAP will catch your eye by changing shape when you walk around it. When you stand in front of the clock: the numbers are clear and visible. When you walk around it: numbers slowly dissolve, and seem to fall apart in little floating white balls.

This optical illusion results in a striking and intriguing piece. Inspired by “MOTION CAPTURE” technique used in the movie-industry.

“I want to create with no concessions and fully explore and crystallize the ideas I have. One idea turns into a clean sleek designed table , the other into a sculptural object without a specific function. Reoccurring themes and directions of thought are the beauty of multiplicity, the marvel hidden in everyday objects, reinterpretation of icons ,exploring the boundaries of new materials, creating the new from the existing.“
