From a distance, Mr. Clock appears to be uncooperative and even stubborn. Since he assumes you’re not paying attention to him, instead of showing the time, his segmented display will just show random, nonsensical configurations. But when you get right up close to him, he’ll immediately start performing his time keeping and reporting duties by displaying the current time. He was designed by Hye-Yeon Park as an art piece more than anything, but he also finally answers that age-old question; if a clock’s ticking away in a gallery and there’s no one around to see it, does it really display the time?
