Controlled via iPad, 288 customized two-handed analogue clocks stacked one atop the other together tell time as a single digital clock.

 

 

 

“All 288 clock houses together create one giant display similar to that of a digital display, all hands move to their new location, creating a choreography of 576 rotating hands to form extensive texts besides elaborate customized patterns and graphics.” says gallery Victor Hunt.
