Mr. Clock Is Starved For Attention


By Andrew Liszewski

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?

  1. I love love the concept of this clock! I really do. 🙂

    This is so ingenious and my kinda thing.  See this clock can serve as a beautiful modern black art piece just hanging on the wall when you are not looking at it. and depending on the design of your lounge space, it would look stunning because of its size and that black screen.

    Also the only time I want to know the time is when I actually LOOK at it too! I have this thing about time, I hate seeing it in front of me all the time ticking away. I actually don’t wear a wrist watch and rely solely on my mobile phone watch, which is never in front of just ticking away visibly. I’m odd, I know. 🙂 But this actually solves that “problem” for me. It will show me time only when I choose to see it.

    I absolutely love this product! Where can I buy it??!?!?! 🙂
