A Million Times, the kinetic installation by Humans Since 1982

Stockholm-based Humans Since 1982 created for Victor Hunt a 3,44 metre long kinetic clock installation. The installation, called ‘A million times‘, is based on almost 300 interconnected analogue clocks. Each clock contains 2 motors to drive the minute and hour-hand independently, creating a choreography. Together, all clocks create one giant display, showcasing customizable texts, patterns and graphics.

With this unique installation Humans since 1982 finalised the clock projects; the clocks escape from its solely pragmatic existence. Usually locked in its functionality to show the time, there is another natural character inherent in an analogue clock. “With its two arms rotating around the centre a clock always dances in slow motion. Shaping out this hidden quality without denying a clocks primary purpose was our goal” Per and Bastian clarify.

A million times will be presented at Design Days Dubai from 18 to 22 March 2013.
