FLUX 1440 – Concept Clock to Remind You How Precious Time Is

FLUX 1440 is a work of art in form of a wall-mounted clock. It displays time mechanically through marks on a very long strip, this project wants to diffuse your every day sense of time by assigning time a spatial dimension.

Every minute is displayed through a certain length of strip, which is marked with a color code. Every second the tape is pulled a little farther. Once per minute, all marks would be positioned perfectly so that time can be read just like a digital display for about three seconds. Then FLUX 1440 would continue to go back to its flow, meandering mess, until 57 seconds later where the next minute can be read again.
