The Lifelong clock was inspired by prison sentences. A prisoner is detained for a certain amount
of time in a designated space. During the sentence the perception of time becomes blurred. Hours, months and years fade into a monotonous rhythm. The hope is that under these circumstances, prisoners find the time to reflect upon their crimes. This timepiece represents the beauty in the passage of time. A jewel on the wall whose amorphous, infinitely changing shape disconnects time from its connotations with stress and haste. — In collaboration with > Veenhuizen
