ClockClock 24 is a statement making object that re-contextualizes time through an ingenious marriage of analog and digital. Twenty-four clocks come together to create a unique digital display. The clock hands are choreographed, liberating the clocks from the sole purpose of telling time. The piece can be programmed in 12-or 24-hour time and has three different modes of movement between each minute: minimal, medium or elaborate.
ClockClock 24 combines technical precision and expert craftsmanship, resulting in the highest quality form. Each piece features 48 motors assembled within a minimalist housing, each set into a rectangular shape, a frame that allows the clock hand’s choreography to shine. The artists’ unwavering commitment to excellence in concept, design and technological innovation has created a design object with a lasting character. Made of Staron®, ClockClock 24 White Edition is produced and carefully assembled in Humans since 1982’s workshop in Stockholm. Includes USB power adapter and wall mount. Cord length: 9.8 feet. Two-year warranty.
