"in-between" Clock

2016

In-between time differences, the time we are spending

There are two faces on this clock, but you can only see one at once. What time is it? We usually respond surely with one answer. Actually, there is more than one time, there are time differences in different countries, there is someone’s preferred time which is maybe 5 minutes faster than your time. This "in-between" clock with two faces is an interactive object that lets people be aware of that there is not only one time going on. The material of the clock handle is Ferro Fluid which is a liquid that becomes strongly magnetized in the presence of magnetic field. When picking up the clock face, the hands melts, it is a metaphor of the different time fading and forming. 

Material: Ferro Fluid, MDF, Glass and Saline water

Dimentions: 11''L x 4''W x 6.5''H
