This conceptual project displays the time as a combination of red, green, and blue (RGB) color values according to the hour, minute, and second. The result is displayed in real time, so to speak.
In this piece, timeascolor, the color of a square is directly set to the time of day, with red set to the hour, green to the minute, and blue to the second, allowing the viewer a new perspective on such everyday systems of knowledge.
