HD Display Clock Amuses & Confuses

HD Display Clock Amuses & Confuses

A bit of hi-tech trickery above: the clock appears to have someone behind it drawing the hands onto the backside of the timepiece with a marker and ruler. In reality the effect has been created using a HD flat screen display that uses a 24 hour HD video loop which coincides with the real time! Very clever…

This clock does not actually have a man inside but a flatscreen that plays a 24 hour loop of this video by the artist watching his own clock somewhere and painstakingly erasing and re-writing each minute. This video was taken at Design Miami during Art Basel Miami Beach 2009.
