The light of the earth / Clock concept

The light of the earth
The light of the earth

The light of the earth is the concept of abstracting time, earth and people as elements of modern clocks. Looking the clock from different angles, the directions of the pointer is opposite. The pointer is made of fluorescent material, which absorbs light during the day and emits light at night. The front and back of the clock ring have different colors reflective bars which are easy to discriminate between front and back observation. The clock is a hanging clock, which gives a kind of suspended visual effect in the case of low light.
