Obscura

This clock relaxes the beholder by irritating him. It plays with the archetype of a clock and modifies it in a single detail. The watch hand, in contrast to a normal watch hand, passes through the middle of the clock and creates a moment of irritation for the observer. He has to follow his own inner sense of time to how late it is. The corpus is made of poured concrete, burnished and covered with a thin layer of laquer. Having a diameter of about 40 cm, the clock is relatively big and heavy, but still manageable and placeable on a wall. At least contemporary and ephemeral neon colored watch hands create a strong contrast to the long lasting concrete and forms an interesting experience for the observer.
