The invention of the clock has greatly benefited mankind.
But when time is represented by numbers, we tend to divide the numbers and fit tight schedules into them with no time for error.
We do not neccasarily need numbers to represent time, but as our ancestors did, we can tell time by the morning light, mid-day shunshine, and the evening sunset
We need a device which visualy shows the flow of time and enables us to sense it.

As the old sundials did, this device represents the flow of time by its light length.

As noon approaches the length of light shortens.
as evening approaches the length of light elongates.
