Jaw-dropping new installation by Humans Since 1982 features 288 clocks

Posted by Rob Alderson,

Hey there. Nice watch you’re rocking on your wrist. No yeah you’re right – stylish. It’s just that no timepiece is ever going to feel enough after you’ve feasted your eyes on this remarkable new installation from wonderfully-named Swedish studio Humans Since 1982. A Million Times uses 288 analogue clocks programmed via an iPad to create a series of swooping, swirling visual patterns, a digital clock face and lettering. It was commissioned by the design and art dealer Victor Hunt, who said: “Locked in its functionality to show the time, the natural character inherent to an analogue clock – with its two arms constantly dancing in slow motion around the center – unveils hidden figurative qualities without denying its primary purpose.”
