Turning 24 Clocks into One

Swedish design firm “humans since 1982” turn 24 clocks into one giant clock. The idea of multiplying a single object to become a form of itself again is very interesting. The clock also goes through a transformation of analog to digital when it multiplies. The piece becomes less about telling time, and more about telling a story of transformation. The clocks now dance and perform a choreographed piece, and the object’s initial function takes a backseat. Check out the review on Core77
