Nadine Grenier, a student at ESAD Strasbourg, made this kinetic installation called “O’clock”. It is made with 500 clocksworks and every 12 hours you can read this sentence: “le temps passe, et chaque fois qu’il y a du temps passe, il y a quelque chose qui s’efface”. This is a quote from Jules Romains, a French poet, which roughly translates in “Time passes, and every time the time passes, there is something that fades”.
It reminds me a little of this clock by Christiaan Postma.
