Time Tower / a timer and a calendar

Time Tower

When we say about the time, it means date and time.
But most of the clocks symbolize time with numbers and lines. This method makes our life prosaic and we feel pressured.
“Time Tower” expresses the time by the use of water.
Water and time have many things in common: flowability, irreversibility and infinity.
In “Time Tower”, a drop of water would be a moment. This means 'pass a moment of time'.
“Time Tower” can be used as either a timer or a calendar, because the infusion system makes it possible to measure the time interval to regulate by controlling of water dropping speed.
