Martha Freud/ Omega Clock

May-July 2014

– Clock, Omega, Martha Freud, Ceramic

(Time lapse movie: We recommend watching the Video full screen to see the robotic cups turning. Also click on the 'HD' icon bottom right.)

The clock is 120 cm square and contains 48 ceramic cups. Many of which are on stepper motors. Time is displayed, very acurately, but in a human way:

"almost quarter to twelve" "just gone one"

Every 5 minutes, a time related saying or some words of advise are offered:

"Lunch is the most important meal of the day." "Tempus Fugit" "Time for a nightcap?"!

The clock was originally created for the 2012 London Olympics
