The Exquisite Clock: dynamic selection of real-world objects

"Exquisite Clock is a clock made of numbers taken from everday life–seen, captured and uploaded by people from all over the world. The project connects time, play and visual aesthetics. It's about creativity, collaboration and exchange.

Exquisite Clock is based on the idea that time is everywhere and that people can share their vision of time. Through the website www.exquisiteclock.org, users are invited to collect and upload images of numbers that can be found in different contexts around them–objects, surfaces, landscapes, cables... anything that has a resemblance to a number.

The exquisite clock has an online database of numbers–an exquisite database–at its core. This supplies the website and interconnected physical platforms. The online database works like a feeder that provides data to different instances of clocks in the form of the website, and installations, mobile applications, designed products and urban screens.

All uploaded numbers are tagged according to a category selected by their creator, and are added to the growing database. People viewing the clock can then choose to view all types of numbers, or can make a selection to view only numbers from a specific category–a clock made of vegetables, or clouds, or garments etc."

(Joao Wilbert)

Fig.1 Exquisite Clock was created and developed Joao Henrique Wilbert at Fabrica in 2009, creative direction by Andy Cameron.

Christian Marclay's The Clock: timekeeping through moments in cinema history

"'The Clock' is constructed out of moments in cinema when time is expressed or when a character interacts with a clock, watch or just a particular time of day. Marclay has excerpted thousands of these fragments and edited them so that they flow in real time. While 'The Clock' examines how time, plot and duration are depicted in cinema, the video is also a working timepiece that is synchronised to the local time zone. At any moment, the viewer can look at the work and use it to tell the time. Yet the audience watching 'The Clock' experiences a vast range of narratives, settings and moods within the space of a few minutes, making time unravel in countless directions at once. Even while 'The Clock' tells the time, it ruptures any sense of chronological coherence."

(White Cube, 2010)

DESIGNABILITIES

"The DESIGNABILITIES blog is part of the project 'Speechless' managed by Tom Bieling and supervised by Prof. Dr. Gesche Joost, at the Design Research Lab of Deutsche Telekom Laboratories.

DESIGNABILITIES is meant to be an exchange platform, not only for the project members or partners, but also for anybody who is interested in the topic likes to share knowledge in this research field.

We like to collect, document and discuss inspiring projects, products, concepts and theories within the range of design, technology, art, architecture, philosophy and pop culture. This includes also the discussion on the progress of our own research work....

It might be links to interesting projects, publications, products or services. It might be book reviews, announcements of interesting events (e.g. conferences, lectures, presentations, releases) or just questions, hypotheses or comments in general."

(Tom Bieling)

UNIQLOCK: fusion of dance video routines, time signal music and clock utility

"It's a fusion of dance video routines, time signal music and clock utility.
The video sequence and the clock display intervenes one another every 5 seconds,
while the time signal music seamlessly connects the two.
The infinite video sequence appears randomly and endlessly.
Viewers are eager to see what happens next.
The clock intervals also give the full–screen videos time to re–load.
It's an artistic expression that serves utility as well as technical necessity.
It's a 24/7 presentation of UNIQLO clothing.
In summer, dancers dress in DRY POLO SHIRTS.
In fall, they chage into CASHMERE SWEATERS.
At midnight, UNIQLOCK goes to sleep mode.
Every hour, there is a special sequence.
It even has an alarm funtion.
They can use the mini–version of UNIQLOCK on their own blog.
The website maps out all the users on the world map,
visualizing the world's UNIQLOCK experience.

UNIQLO CLOCK, UNIQUE CLOCK, UNITED CLOCK...

In short, UNIQLOCK"
