The Clock Project is a push to explore rectilinear and curvilinear three dimensional form. The form of the clock should be appealing from every angle the viewer may see.
We began by doing a form study. The forms were dictated to be an exploration of Dominant, Subdominant, and Submissive form. They were carved from blue foam and assembled with pins an glue.
Then, we started thinking about how these forms could be clocks. I had the idea that there would be a plinth with clock hands that were both semi-cones. I made a foam model before going forward.
I decided to construct the final clock base from yellow foam. I 3D printed the hands and began to sand and apply Bondo them to get them smooth.
Then, I Spray painted each part with flat white paint.
The final product was achieved
Every hour and five minutes, the clock hands line up to perform a circle at the base. When the hands separate, the clock wobbles. The intention of this clock was to appear as a sun dial. It's form would belong on a desk and there is no indicator for a specific time, however the clock itself shuffles around the table. So when the owner leaves leaves and comes back to the clock it is in a different place every time. A subtle hint at how much time may have past since they last worked at their desk.
