Despite living in a digital age ruled by smartphones, tablets and bluetooth speakers, we still have a nostalgic fascination with the analog world, especially clocks. Swedish design duo Humans Since 1982’s seamlessly blend the two worlds in an incredible installation called A Million Times.
The installation consists of 135 interconnected analog clocks that move together like a dance into an array of patterns, finally syncing together to display the current time represented in digital format.
The duo have been playing with the analog-meets-digital clock concept for a while now. Their first project called The Clock Clock first went on display at the Saatchi Gallery in London in 2010, and they’ve since worked on a number of iterations of the concept leading to their A Million Times project, that includes a number of different versions such as a barren circular slab of aluminum.
This latest installation is on display at London’s Ham Yard Hotel.
There slight irony in the fact that there’s even an app. However, great art isn’t free; the app will set you back $2.99
