ClockClock 24 'White' Kinetic Wall Sculpture by Humans Since, 1982


Time is constant, yet eeting. No sooner has one moment arrived that it’s gone again. And yet, we want to capture it before it passes. Clocks have always been a way to frame the present, to give it a life and make it tangible, even if we know it’s ultimately ephemeral. The idea for ClockClock 24 comes from a sculpture by the artist duo Humans since 1982. In 2008, the Swedish/German duo started experimenting with graphic compositions that displayed letters and digits in a novel and playful way. For the original project, named simply ClockClock, they developed this digital concept into a hybrid between a work of kinetic art and a wall clock. As the hands of the clock move, the letters and numbers tick their way into existence. Every time has a meaning —by making its shi perceptible, we can come to truly appreciate its passing. The rst limited edition of the ClockClock was exhibited at Saatchi Gallery London in 2010, and was soon acquired by prominent museums like the International Museum of Horology in La Chaux-de-Fonds in Switzerland. Since the creation of the original version of ClockClock, Humans since 1982 have developed the concept into larger scale pieces, in the series “A million Times”. These installations have been exhibited at some of the world’s most in uential museums internationally. ClockClock 24 nally brings the concept of kinetic time sculpture to a wider audience, in a more compact and a ordable version and lends a joyful satisfaction to the passing of time, in its clever interplay between analogue and digital time- keeping. Originally commissioned by MoMA’s New York store, ClockClock 24 is produced and carefully assembled in Humans since 1982’s workshop in Sweden and is currently available on the ClockClock website and through selected retail partners worldwide. Founded by Per Emanuelsson and Bastian Bischo , Humans since 1982 is a pioneering creative studio responsible for a host of mesmerising and playful kinetic works, shown to critical acclaim at eminent venues including the Saatchi Gallery, London and Cooper Hewitt Museum, New York. The pair were later joined by engineer David Cox who collaborated on the projects ClockClock and A million Times. Today, the studio is comprised of a larger group of specialists who bring together a unique blend of expertise and intellectual curiosity, exploring the interplay of design, art and engineering.
