Time drawings

Just like a normal clock, Niek de Snoo’s project Time Drawings shows the time. But the big hand holds a piece of chalk that drops down as the year progresses. This will fill the space under the clock and literally make the passing of time visible. After a year the drawing is full and after changing the chalk the process can start all over again. De Snoo: “I wanted to design something that would change in a positive way during use. I also had the need to gain a more expansive sense of time with this clock, to get a grip on time.”
