Meike Harde has designed this fun clock to alter how we perceive the passing of time. Her design features a ballerina in the center that changes positions as time passes. The ballerina’s body works as the hour hand and one of her feet points to the minutes. The perpetual contortion of her body is fascinating… and a little painful looking.
Harde transforms the typically mechanical-looking device into an elegant and fragile tool. She explains, “Its metaphorical design tries to introduce poetry into an every-day item and to throw a contemplative glance at the transien[ce] of time by means of the seemingly eternally young ballerina.”
