Human Grandfather Clock

Propose your edition
The Grandfather Clock is part of the Real Time series, designed by Maarten Baas in 2009. An LCD screen is installed as the face of the clock: it shows a 12-hour movie in loop of a blurred figure of a man continuously indicating the time by drawing the hour and minute clock hands with a marker directly on the screen. The combination of the human-size of the clock together with the image of the moving blurred man creates an optical illusion of a real man standing inside the clock — a figurative personal specialist telling the time.
