Clock Helix 1

Posted on by admin


This 3D printed sculpture shows a two dimensional clock face, with time represented as the third spatial dimension. The structure is fixed but a moving laser highlights a particular cross section of time. This version is just 15cm long, and represents 40 seconds. At this scale, a 12 hour version would be 162 metres long.

I was building on the idea from an earlier work: 2D + t: 10:00 AM

The GIF on the right is a quick fast-forward scan of the shape. The video at the bottom is a brief clip at 1 second per second, with sound.
