The prompt was to design an experience for a specific group of people in a public space in New York.
We were curious why some people were more likely to be late, or “forget about the time,” and came to the conclusion that everyone perceived time differently. To illustrate this difference, we designed a clock.
Clock model by Ping.
How It Works
While one side of the clock displays the actual time, the other side remains blank and invites people to enter their perceived time through an attached input device. Their input time will be displayed as an overlay on top of the actual time for 30 seconds.
With this clock installation, we hope people can sit down, relax, and feel their inner clock for a moment.
