Hiding Time / clock

Hiding Time
Hiding Time

At first glance the object »Hiding Time« reminds to a clock, but something essential is missing – the clock hands. The timer as a clock of life is therefore hidden deliberately. The current time only appears by pulling the clock pendulum. This happens immediately and only for a short moment. After a few seconds the clock hands disappear automatically. Thus, the obvious time of everyday
life disappears as well. The object »Hiding Time« continues with the desire to slow down our complex and fast-moving life.
