Parallel of Time Clock
View Slideshow

The Parallel of Time clock by John Leung and ClarkeHopkinsClarke Architects is a series of clocks of the same time and join together to create interconnected parallelograms, thus the clock’s name.

From the designers:

“Time is parallel. The speed of time (on earth) is indubitable but everyone’s perception of the speed is somehow different. Using multiple clocks and cables to create a number of parallelograms, a design is generated: The Parallel of Time. The parallelograms are interconnected, creating an optically illusory axonometric timepiece. Mechanically speaking, since the hands on every clock (within the same time zone) produce the same angle, the lengths of the connecting cables remain constant as the clock runs.”
