massive digital ceiling clock



a minimalist installation that acts as a light sign, an information carrier, & a light source at the same time. 2 digits of 7-segment display, formed using industrial fluorescent tubes, are suspended from the ceiling.

as a "display", the installation is used to show the current time in minutes. at the same time, as a light installation, it is the only light source inside the exhibition space & therefore it serves as the necessary pragmatic lighting source. as the displayed information is changing every minute, the over all light intensity is kept on a constant level during all times, thus the appearance of the exhibition space is changed subtly but constantly.


watch a timelapse movie after the break.
