Your City is Your Clock

By Andrew Sinenistreetclock

I believe this was a student project from the Royal Academy of Art. You are probably saying to yourself, “Big deal, they painted some yellow over a couple shadows and wrote down the time!??? But really, the “design??? of the clock uses an entire urban area as a sundial.

What made me so interested in this is that this is more intricate, more technically advanced, and more cool than any time keeping device on the market. How much design, architecture, and science go into making those shadows tell time? Let me tell you… eleven of each.

Ok, so I didn’t sleep well last night and I am really tired. Nonetheless, this is pretty amazing stuff. Thanks Liz.

    Pretty nice, except that the clock was only “accurate” the day is was made (and, the same day every year), Earth changes its position over the seasons.
