This wall sculpture is modular - each World Clock takes a different interval to be brought to its starting position, so that with the help of subtle markings, an observer can actually tell the Time, Day, Month and Year and Internet Time from looking at this moving piece of art. There will be chime or melody type audio clues as well. Similar to the great animated marketplace clock towers in Europe, which attract crowds waiting for 12 AM to see the automatons and hear the chimes, the release of the World Clock arms will attract tourists and locals alike.
An extremely cost effective alternative to this artwork, is to rear-project an animation of the World Clocks onto a screen. This colorful and impressively large-scale, animated display will be computer driven, so any imagery, message, etc can be interspersed, thereby attracting attention and delighting onlookers.
