Christiaan Postma Clock

This clock by Christiaan Postma is build with 150 clockworks, each white line is one clockwork. They all have to work together to become one clock. The time is written by the lines, on the left you can read three, on the right four and so on. I guess this animation will make it clear how it works.

    I think that this clock is just stupid, and things like this shouldn’t be promoted. Let me ask you a question …what would you prefer ? This clock or a normal one that can shows you the hour right away ?

    I think this clock is more like an object that you hang on your wall, like an animated painting. People won’t use this clock as a clock. It will take a very long before you saw every single composition of the time, unless you’re going to watch it 12 hours straight. That’s why I think this is interesting and unseen. Not every has to be form follows function …
    M!hai, are you sure that everything you like is that practical?

    I wonder how the guy planned this out. It’s amazing to see what people can do.

    It’s called art people. There are clocks all around us and so much of the time we never really realize how creative people can get with them. It’s seems like its becoming a bigger trend though and personally I like it. The concept of time is always an enjoyable endeavor and it’s fun to see what people can do with it.

    Agreed, clocks are a fun artistic canvas. Man invented time after all, so why not play with it a little.

    amazing work!

    @juzevo: men did not invent time, they just made up the units to measure it.
