The Ministry of Time

There are few human inventions that have impacted our behaviour more than our ability to measure time, modern lifestyles dictating that it be measured and regimented down to every minute.

The Ministry of Time presents two time-telling devices that allow users to have alternate experiences of time by exploring perception and control. The first is the Hour-Minute Clock, that allows users to decide whether they want to see either hours or minutes indicated on the screen. The second is the Sliding Clock, which expands on this idea by inviting users to pull two units apart depending on the measure of time they want to experience- seconds, minutes or hours.
