The installation is made of 288 two-handed analogue clocks powered by 576 electrical engines to drive the minute- and hour hands independently from each other. The individual clocks create one giant display similar to that of a digital display.

A Million Times by Humans Since 1982

Simply titled ‘the Clock Clock’, brilliantly re-contextualizing time in a mix of old and new, analogue and digital, the original clock is made of 24 traditional two-handed analogue alarm clocks stacked on top of each other. Six square clocks make up a number, each of them displaying either one of its corners or one of its sides. All 24 clocks create one giant display similar to that of a digital watch, says Per Emanuelsson & Bastian Bischoff of Humans Since 1982.
