Time like Nature / clock

Time like Nature
Time like Nature

The clock »Time like Nature« deals with the origins of timekeeping and is based on the natural conditions of the day and night cycle. The timer is placed on the window by means of a suction cup. Due to the natural brightness of the day, time is present. With the onset of the dusk, the shadow of the clock hands decreases steadily with the result that no more time is visible in the night hours. As the name of the object »Time like Nature« suggests, the concept of the clock is motivated on the desire for a more natural living in an increasingly artificial world.
