Laikingland is presenting a short film about their sand timer by Maarten Baas. The sand timer, called Just About Now, indicates the passing of time with the sounding of a gong. The making of the short film coincide with an exhibition in Beijing (7 March – 10 April) at the O Clok exhibition by Triennale Design Museum.
There are several objects that illustrate time in a more poetic way, like Mieke Meijers ‘Relativity’ Time pieces or my own ‘Real Time’ series, but a timer hasn’t yet been made that is adjustable and gives a sound after a while. That’s why we developed ‘Just About Now’ says Maarten Baas.
