TIME AS IT WANTS TO BE SEEN
This many-handed clock shows the time as if it were a wall clock when an area is crowded, and shows no time if there is nobody. Noise moves the hands towards indicating time; the busier the area, the more accurate it becomes.
The piece is a commentary on the relationship between Time as an abstract, unknowable dimension and Standard Time as a human practical system. Standard Time, a rather recent development, helps us find ourselves and each other on a singular timeline, and does not reflect the true nature of Time. The clock explores the interdependency between people and Standard Time, and what Time becomes without us.
The Cone Clock is intended for the foyer of the Wellcome Collection, a museum with different cultural and medical exhibitions which collectively reflect on human perception.
HOW DO YOU SUSPEND BOTH YOUR WORK AND YOURSELF?
Made for Hitch Mylius, the hm640 is for corporate and semi-formal environments. It is great for not being too productive, with relaxing seats that isolate you from the outside.
hm640 is a response to researching privacy in public environments, as well as understanding Hitch Mylius and where the company can be taken next. With their adaptability for spaces in mind, the seating is designed so that several can be combined into different closed spaces, making it ideal for groups of people.
