Inspired by the landscape art of kare-sansui, or you might know it as Japanese Zen rock garden, SAND is a unique concept clock that represents ripples of time with sand. It displays gradual formation and flattening of a ripple pattern over a period of twelve-hour cycles. During the day, the hour hand draws ripple of patterns on the sand while during the night, these patterns would be gradually flattened out to restart a new cycle.
Designed by Studio Ayaskan, SAND Clock is a special project created as a result of our desire longing for nature and to want to feel connected to it. With nature, everything changes, constantly, it moves from one cycle to another, the moon, the sun, the tides, day-night. This clock wants to visualize the passage of time through spontaneous fluctuations in the pattern of sand as the cycle unfolds over time.
