The knitting clock project was designed to measure & register time in a three dimensional form to visualise the otherwise invisible time factor , which connects us all.
The project can best be described as a merge of a knitting machine and a cuckoo clock.
Each passing of a half hour is marked by the knitting of a mesh , a full day is registered in 48 hours and a year results in an approximate two metre long scarf......
HERE'S THE MATHS !
1. Would you have the patience to wait a year for the scarf ?
(it probably knits faster than I could , so yes)
2. I wonder does it cast off automatically ?
(something as a child I could never grasp)
3. If the idea is to visualise the otherwise invisible time factor , time must go really really slow dont you think ?
(maybe it would be a great meditation tool or would it be like watching paint dry ?)
I never cease to be amazed by peoples ideas , inventions & designs and wonder why did I miss out on this amazing gene pool .
