The whole is greater than the sum of its parts is clearly demonstrated by this mesmerising wall piece. 288 individual minimalist clocks make up the large display with the hands of each clock moving independently and in perfect harmony to create spellbinding patterns and sequences. Each clock then moves to unveil the wall piece’s perfectly fitting function by displaying the current time, in a large digital format.
The artistic masterpiece, titled A million times, is engineered by Stockholm based design studio, Humans since 1982.
Each hour and minute hand is independently driven by a total of 576 motors which enable the patterns and movements demonstrated in the video.
The studio has also developed a number of smaller designs made from 24 to 96 individual clocks. Each design is made of aluminium and would make the perfect focal point of a modern home or business foyer.
